Geocaching Angry Birds’ Style

A flock of Angry Birds has taken up geocaching; starting in the British borough of Putney.

The popular cartoon characters, which star in six touchscreen apps created by Finnish company Rovio, are being hidden throughout the south-west London neighbourhood as part of a Christmas-themed treasure hunt.

Six plush toy replicas will be roosting in different businesses across the district, with clues given on a new mobile application as to where each is located.

People who spot a bird are invited to photograph it and upload the image to the The Angry Birds Putney Christmas Safari app, according to a report on Your Local Guardian. Every contributor will then go into the draw to win the birds before Christmas.

The new app is the brainchild of London firm TiCL Media, and is believed to be the first of its kind to create a town-based treasure hunt using geocaching and smartphone technology.
