Pigeons on the Line
It's official, Pigeons use the underground!
Location: West Ham Tube Station, E15
Description: Who'd have thought...not only do these little critters get pretty much everywhere else in London - depositing their business on the pavements as if their very existence depended on it...
But it seems that they also travel on the underground!!
In fact, Pigeons regularly travel from West Ham in east London to central London on the tube in order to get more food...which is a pretty hideous fact - but amusing at the same time!
You have been warned
