Small child feeding pigeons in Trafalgar Square in London

About the author

The author and editor of GREENWOOD showing an early interest in wildlife – feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square in London. Way back in the day, vendors sold seed for people to give to the pigeons which used to flock there, and were incredibly tame, often sitting on your head or hand. The activity was soon banned as the birds made such a mess. Of course, it goes without saying, that the author would never dream of giving food to specifically attract pigeons at Greenwood House – they don’t need any encouraging!
