If it was a bird, then some questions remain:
why THIS bird, over any other bird that went past the webcam? Its not as if the BBC put a webcam up for the day and captured a 'UFO' on it, nor is
it likely that no bird has ever flown past that screen in the months (or years) that backdrop has been used for this ident. We dont know how long this
cam has been in place, either, but i wager its been a few years.
This is evidently the BBC's backdrop for their broadcast from this local station - this isnt a tiny webcam plugged into the back of a PC, either -
they are probably using a remotely controlled Hi res digital camera of some kind attached to the roof of their broadcast station, dont forget - they
could move it around if they want - particularly if there is something they wouldnt want you to see in the bckground (eg. a protest) or a road
Im not saying it is a UFO, A bird, or whatever - as someone pointed out in another post - look at the speed and blurring in comparison to traffic and
the definition of other objects in the screen.
Maybe its someone having a laugh with a an air-filled plastic rocket perhaps.
The BBC is investing in popular science programmes at the moment - 'Bang Goes the Theory' for example - dont be surprised if its a stunt for this
programme or similar - not wishing to sound cynical.
