Ken Livingstone may have banned pigeons from their ancestral home of Trafalgar Square, but the occasional avian rebel still intrudes. Last night a whole flock invaded. Members of Stitch London (formerly Stitch and Bitch) inundated the Square with tens of hand-made birds, reclaiming the space for dove-kind. The tiny perching pigeons were designed by Anna Hrachovec, who specialises in extremely cute knit-critters.
