Cranes in the News!

Earlier this week, we invited a professional photographer (Richard Austin) down to the project to try and capture some of the incredible sights that Roland Amy and myself have been party to over the last couple of weeks.  Thanks to these stunning images, the cranes have been a hot topic of the week with photographs and short pieces in both the local and national press, and we have been reminded just how much interest and desire there is in the wider community to see these wonderful birds back in the landscape.

We also were lucky to have the interest of the BBC's Radio 4 Saving Species programme who have been following the project and reported live on this exciting stage in the release process.  If you missed it you can listen again at - www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00tmlh0/Saving_Species_Episode_19.
