A great opportunity to watch a crane nest in comfort

Check out Monty and Sedge nesting at WWT Slimbridge at this link! 

They've been going since the last days of April/first days of May - so due to hatch around the end of the month....    finger's crossed!

A disappointing week

Having watched and waited eagerly for the ‘happy event’ due last weekend for Timmy and Michaela, disaster struck.   Evidence at the nest suggested that a chick had hatched but either died or was predated soon after. The parent birds were seen in the fields nearby feeding the following day. Such a shame to get so far but it is possible they could try for a third time.
