New Bird On The Block

Spotted in Trafalgar Square!
A new bird!
Not the usual feral pigeon variety!


Yes - a bright blue cockerel! 

I happened to be in Trafalgar Square yesterday shortly after Mayor Boris had unveiled it.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of it and neither was my friend's four year old daughter. 'Bizarre' was my choice of word to describe it. 'Silly bird' were Lydia's.

It is rather unusual but then anything that goes on the Forth Plinth usually is. I wonder if they will ever decide on something more permanent? Somehow I doubt it.

  1. It's very, erm, blue. Of course, the press have had a field day with their headlines!

    1. Some of the headlines were so funny but I think that it was asking for it! x

  2. Love it! I really enjoy reading about your adventures around London and look forward to your summer blog posts. Congrats on the teaching course and job. It's something I'd like to do in the next few years too x

    1. Thanks for your comment, Emma! It was lovely to hear from you. I really need to start prepping for September now, but after a year of solid work I'm just finding too many distractions! It's definitely worth doing though if you have a passion for little people. I'm very lucky I get to spend all day, every day with them! x

  3. I really like bright, quirky street art. It reminds me not to take myself - or life - too seriously! :)

  4. Ha! You should Google our Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. He certainly doesn't take life too seriously! x
