To ringers that catch Pigeons and Doves (UK) (1 Viewer)


Earlier this year I found a species of fly, Pseudolynchia canariensis (Hippoboscidae) aka the Pigeon Louse Fly, which appears to be the first record for Britain.

It would be good to know whether or not this species is found throughout the country - which is plausible due to the low level of recording of the family - and for that I would be interested in receiving any specimens of Hippoboscidae found on Pigeons and Doves.

If anyone would be willing to assist me in this then please do get in contact.
Thanks, Matt.
