A familiar feathered friend returned to Thamesmead’s KFC this afternoon (May 10).

Hannibal, south-east London’s favourite cannibalistic bird, has paid a number of fly thru visits to the fast food joint in the past.

The chicken fan was pictured peeking through the window - staring longingly at the content diners inside.

The snap was posted on Twitter by Thamesmead Wardens, who joked: “Hannibal waiting for his take out meal outside KFC”.

The peckish bird was filmed tucking into some grub outside the same store, off Central Way, just last month.

He was also pictured perched on the roof of the restaurant in March.
