English garden with a Swiss chalet… Pamela Breitberg 3 years ago This quaint Swiss Chalet is actually on Duck Island, in St. james Park, in London. Really. Were there no quaint English cottages suitable for the 1841 birdkeeper of St. james Park. It’s design was purposeful; it was designed to contrast with the many nearby government buildings.

Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg Not one of the original ducks and geese of St. James Park, but a happy bird indeed rested just outside the Swiss Chalet’s garden walls. I wonder who and where the birdkeeper of 2020 resides now.
