I would like to be... a pelican

I would like to be a pelican. Living in St James’ Park, being fed by the tourists (despite signs imploring them not to). Having my photo taken, like a red-carpet celebrity, as I wander the footpaths causing speeding cyclists to swerve into pedestrians. With my own little island on the lake – a haven of peace and quiet away from prying eyes.

But it might be a bit cold in the snow.
