Racing pigeon enthusiast Fred Lock is hoping to be reunited as soon as possible with his prized bird after it went missing - and turned up in the Bahamas.
Henry went missing from his coop in Leeds after Fred released him in France in May for a race.
Fred thought he'd lost him for good until he got a call all the way from the Bahamas to say Henry had been discovered alive and well, apparently enjoying a "holiday."
The pigeon was indentified by Kate Barley, from Grimsby, who's now living in the Bahamas, from a wing ring with his Leeds telephone number.
Since the phone call, Fred has been kept up-to-date with his progress with emails and pictures and could be reunited with him this September.
