A rather bizarre photo this week, a parachuting pigeon who will be demonstrating his unusual hobby as part of the Etham at War! weekend at Eltham Palace.

On Saturday and Sunday, the palace grounds will commemorate Eltham Palace’s role during WWII, with military vehicles, war-time music and dancing, fun activities for kids and a look into the wartime role of animals – dogs who can rescue survivors from rubble and falcons who intercepted carrier pigeons like this little chap in the picture.

It’s a perfect day out for Father’s Day!

If you pop along, don’t forget to share your photos with the Visit London Flickr Pool.

Eltham at War, 19-20 June, 10:00 – 17:00, adult £6-£12, child £3-£10.20. www.englishheritage.org.uk
