Owl – Morden Tube Station

This is a life-like model of an owl placed near the lift entrance that serves Platform 5 of Morden Tube Station in South London.  This is the southern end of the Northern Line tube service which was opened on the 13th of September, 1926.  Apparently, Transport for London (TFL) have a policy of placing very realistic Owl models at various stations situated above ground, as a means to scare away pigeons and prevent them from landing, feeding, and nesting etc.
