Two local coot families have moved into brand new homes provided by the Islington Ecology Centre just yesterday. The two familes, the first residents of three neighbouring nesting platforms containing a diverse mix of comfortable and attractive flora, said "we are so happy. We’ve lived in King’s Cross for generations and were fearing that we may have to leave because there wasn’t enough greenery for us. The Ecology Centre have saved us from an uncertain future and we can now look forward to future generations continuing to find safe and secure homes". Local human residents added their support saying, "The coots are an important part of our diverse community, it’s lovely being able to wave at them in their comfy new nests".
