Chaos In Soho Square, And A Worrying Fashion Trend

Nowadays, trotting round Soho Square as I like to do is proving more than a little challenging. Nothing but one big building site thanks to Crossrail. Don’t know where it’s crossing from, or to, but wherever it’s going, it’s a fucking pain in the arse. Unbelievable, and likely to stay that way for quite some time. Come to think of it, what’s going on in London generally? Pavements shut down everywhere and, the truth is, the disarray is creating mass confusion for the majority of London pigeons.

Take Sidney, for example. Sidney, or Sid as he likes to be called, self-named after his screen hero Sid James, found himself in a spot of bother recently.

This is where I found him – wandering aimlessly behind the netting:

No idea what was going on. Looked like he’d been there for days. Far as I know, he still is.

In the meantime, I spotted this yesterday. A worrying fashion trend in pigeon wear. Really don’t get it – the wearing of a white chest feather. WTF? A pal told me it was a peace sign. Something to do with the dove.

Sad, that’s what I call it:

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘chest feather’. Twat.

What’s even more frightening is the wearer also appears to be dribbling profusely. Surely that’s not a fashion statement too? Worrying times.

    Now pigeons are getting in on the “chest accessory for a cause” thing?
    That’s eerie…
