Pigeons being released from their cages only to return after a nice long flight.
Full title reads: "HOMEWARD BOUND - 40,000 pigeons liberated at Selby."
Selby, North Yorkshire.
A shot of a long line of cages filled with pigeon next to a train. Several shots of the men around the cages. Nice close up shot of pigeons in cage. Men open the cages and thousands of pigeons fly out.
This is a pigeon race - pigeons are transported to a certain destination and then released only to see who is the first back home. Sensitive clocks record the time of their return and winner is announced.
