Pigeons Gather For G20 Rally

I happened to notice a larger than usual number of pigeons hanging out in Hyde Park today, so I Twittered about it. Ian from Ian Visits suggested it might have something to do with the G20 summit. On the button, Ian. Spot on.

I managed to catch-up with a couple of splinter flocks from Wales and the North East, and spoke to a representative from a group called the Pro-Pigeon Alliance, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals:

He said, “We’re here to protest against the rampant overuse of spikes in Northampton. Pigeons deserve the right to demonstrate. We are hoping it will remain peaceful.”

More pigeons are expected to arrive in the Capital tomorrow from groups including PigeonAid, Pigeons of the Earth and Help The Pigeon. So far, witnesses have described the atmosphere as ‘reasonably upbeat’.

As London’s premier blogging pigeon, I’ll be reporting on the action as it happens. Bringing you the latest on what is promising to be the lagest gathering of pigeons ever seen in London.

Bring it on.

    I’m was planning to join in, but the weather in Scotland is great I hear. I’ll probably stop for a competition of “poop the ball” in St Andrews. The flight from Oslo is long, so I thought I would take a sleep-over in Scotland.

    Anyways, I hope to see the pictures when some of the wood pigeons from Scotland fly back.

    GOOD LUCK!
