Paddington Basin and home for 7 days. Jaq says avoid hotel costs and bring your home with you.
Maybe the Newt was sheltering from the hail stones in this sudden downpour.
Well if you are comfortable sitting on the roof steering then why not. The picture on the left shows his extended tiller arm. Maybe the motor cycle and the roof box up front blocked his view in the normal steering position.
Parakeets to be seen on the way in to London. Usually seen around Cowley and then all the way into Paddington. They have been around for many years and are now spreading into the midlands. As to where they came from the answers are many. Jimmy Hendrix released them to brighten up Carnaby Street. Some escaped from the film set of African Queen. Another theory is some escaped from a cargo plane at Heathrow airport. Anyway for sure there are thousands now as they have acclimatised to our weather and have no problem breeding and surviving. Plenty of them in Hyde Park. Anyway we need a few brightly coloured birds in the UK.
