The Battlebridge Cockatiel

Battlebridge-cockatiel A fantastic sight at Battlebridge Basin on the Regent's Canal behind King's Cross Station today: this beautiful cockatiel swooping over the canal with its distinctive cry. (Photo: Jean James.)

Although we think it must have escaped from someone's home not too far away, it didn't seem distressed. Quite the opposite – it came to a human call, played on the guttering on Gatti's Wharf and amazed us all as it stood its ground against well known hoodlum Emily (of the Charlotte & Emily Jackson nee Bronte feline crime family whose operations in and around the basin have us all quaking with fear). Emily backed off and the cockatiel remained! It was finally scared off by the racket from a woodpigeon, hopefully to find its way back home. 

If you know that this cockatiel is missing from home, do contact us. We can alert people around the canal to keep an eye and hopefully help return it safely.
