Appointed by Balfour Beatty Van Vynck's bird control team have been tasked with keeping London's newest attraction, the Orbit at the Olympic park, pigeon free.

Designed by internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor, the Orbit is the tallest art structure in Britain and at 115m high offers fantastic views of the Olympic Park and London from the viewing platform.  Visitors are whisked from ground level by an elevator to the viewing platform at 85m high in just 30 seconds.

Van Vynck's bird control team are using their trained Harris Hawks to deter pigeons from the structure and make regular visits to the site.
