Last week I had an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Olympic Village alongside some of the key players that helped to build ecology into the site. I'll be writing a piece about in a forthcoming issue of Bird Watching Magazine.
I was very impressed at how well nature was integrated into the whole complex. It has to be said that once work is completed I think that it will make for a very interesting little urban patch. They have already recorded Short-eared Owl flying around inside one of the stadiums last winter and a Cuckoo this spring!
