Paralympic Park

An area of land in Stratford (the London, not the Shakespearean one) is undergoing a transformation from the Olympic Park to the Paralympic Park.

The Paralympic logo consists of three "Agitos", from the Latin "I move"

There's even a monument to the Hackney Fridge Mountain

Look who we found lurking on the river!
History - though we thought it prudent not to borrow the Gloriana and re-enact it.


Mandeville (the Paralympic Mascot)

It's really rather lovely - in addition to the wildlife I snapped, I saw a multitude of dragonflies, butterflies, a shag, bumble-bees, coots and ducks. And I had the wrong lens on each time...
