A NEW bird has appeared and is making itself at home along the River Avon in Salisbury, but it's no ordinary type of animal.

Tucked away along the bridge outside Old Mill Hotel, on the Town Path, an illustration of a bird and a fish has appeared, to the delight and confusion of residents.

Passer-by Jon Meech sent an image of the graffiti to the Journal, adding it "made him smile" as he believed the creatures to be real until he got a closer look.

Salisbury Journal:

Suggesting the bird and fish image appeared Tuesday night, Jon said: "I was walking to work via the Town Path past the Old Mill Hotel [Wednesday morning, July 28], and spotted this street art on the River Avon mill wall.

"It looks amazing in the area and as you may see from the picture it has a real looking fish in its mouth. It just brightened up my morning."
