Pigeons on the Tube

This was reported in various places: this is from The Electronic Telegraph, Friday 29 September 1995

I saw this myself on Monday 25th March 1996...

A pigeon hopped on to the Circle Line at Aldgate. It then wandered around the space between the opposing doors. As the train pulled into Tower Hill, it backed away from the door which was to open and took off just before the door opened, reaching the now-open doorway in full flight.
