Bird lady does her tricks

By Rhonda Dredge

You don’t have to hang out in a bar at Southbank to be wild and free.

Local personality Jacky brings a loaf of bread to the riverbank and shares it with her mates.

The pigeons are the friendliest, she said, landing on her head and nestling in her arms.

The seagulls, unbelievably, are more reticent and will only take bread out of her hands.

“I love them,” she told Southbank News. “They love to eat.”

She said people didn’t realise how much fun birds were •
