Look to the skies today (19th April 2016) as a large helicopter formation is expected over London this afternoon.
A short-notice air traffic alert to other aircraft warns of a “large formation of mixed type helicopters” flying between Iver and London Bridge sometime between 2:40pm and 3:30pm.
As it happens there is currently a wide-scale air traffic warning over the entire of London at the moment.
That is probably due to a certain US President visiting the UK sometime this week. Such as probably arriving in Heathrow at lunchtime and taking a helicopter ride into central London.
So if you see the helicopters, one of them might be designated Marine One, the name given to a helicopter carrying the US President.
Probably wont fly through Tower Bridge though.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
