Campaigners in west London are fighting so save two paintings on the walls of the South Acton Estate. The illustrations are part of street artist ATM's series 'Big Birds'. It draws attention to the effects of urbanisation on local wildlife in the area. They depict a snipe and a grey partridge.
With Ealing Council planning down to knock down the building the birds are painted on, campaign group Gilded Birds ask that the birds are either incorporated into the rebuild or relocated – and have launched a petition. They write: 'This is an iconic series of bird paintings that bring real beauty to urban landscapes and have received attention from the national press as well as inspiring local communities'.
