This picturesque cottage on the lake of St. James's Park in London was first built in 1665, and birds of various kinds have been kept here since 1612, when James I began converting the swampy chase of the Tudor monarchs into a formal garden. It was destroyed in 1771 and rebuilt after 1840 as a bird keeper's lodge. The island is both a sanctuary and a breeding ground for wildfowl, mute swans, pelicans and other birds.
