The King of Rome
: a heart-warming article about a long-dead racing pigeon.
The King of Rome was a successful racing pigeon, winning a 1,001-mile (1,611 km) race from Rome, Italy to England, in 1913. It was the subject of a song and book, both by Dave Sudbury, the former most famously recorded by June Tabor.

By no means am I suggested that anyone mess with it, but I was struck by the phrase "my Wikipedia article". Perhaps Mabbett is unaware that anyone can edit WP, redirect his article to "Pigeon", and reduce it to a fragment in the much-needed "Pigeons in popular culture" section alongside some Simpsons and Pokemon references.
