The Hidden City

195 руб.

The Hidden City is a celebration of the unusual wildlife found in London.

Read the time by checking the position of the parrots in the day or the bat at night.

When you think of a busy and bustling capital city, wildlife isn’t the first thing that comes to mind, is it? However hidden away in London's parks are flocks of exotic parrots.

These bright green birds provide a startling contrast to the grey city. Although their cry is unmistakable, they’re generally difficult to spot as they are well camouflaged by the trees they live in.

Where did these exotic birds come from? There are many curious and bizarre tales about how the parrots settled in London. The most popular is that a few captive parrots escaped from a pet shop in the 1980s. They managed to adapt to the chilly environment of London parkland and have spread through London ever since.

The bat is another unusual city dweller whose numbers are on the increase: with greater attention paid to protecting and preserving their habitats, numbers have swelled in the recent years. Bats are often hidden creatures, but if you're lucky you'll catch sight of them in London's parks at dusk.
