Delhi Here I Come

Apologies for the lack of posts but I have, yet again, been stuck under Waterloo Bridge as the worst storm in thirty years hit the UK. Unbelievable. I know you got it a lot worse in places like Florida, but equally I reckon you probably deal with it a whole lot better too. Over here, it’s fucking mayhem. Pigeons getting blown about all over the place trying to land whilst desperately searching for a decent place to sit, preferably one that’s out of the wind. It’s not easy. Then again, with the lack of summer we’ve just had, most London pigeons are getting used to it. Having spent a good few weeks under Waterloo Bridge earlier this year, I almost consider it a home from home.

Saying all that, somewhere hotter and less windy would be nice. So, with a total lack of shit to do other than sit around waiting for it to stop raining, I started looking at where else in the world would be good for a pigeon to live. So far, Delhi is top of the list. Big time. Pigeons over there have got it good.

Not only do they get to live in nice sheltered places like this:

They get their own rooms and can spend their days looking at pigeons like this:

Sweet as.

You can read more about it here. They’ve even given the whole thing a name. It’s called Kabootarbaazi. Bring it on.

If only it wasn’t such a long fucking way away, I’d be there in a heartbeat.

Maybe if I slimmed down a bit, disguised myself as a racer and sat in a box outside Heathrow Terminal 4 chewing on a poppadom? Could work?

    I’ve never seen so many beautiful pigeons all in one place! Of course, you’d expect no less from the country that invented Bollywood.

      The best we get is a hole underneath Waterloo Bridge. Most of the derelict buildings are boarded up these days. Selfish is the word.

    Our Mummy rescued a pigeon who got blown into the church in the town centre. Unbelievably, everyone was just walking past when it was obviously hurt. Mummy wrapped it in her cardigan and took it to the nearest vets. They think it has broken something but will be letting Mummy know soon. It is so sad that people don’t care about our wildlife enough to help.
