The Best Year So Far!

Hello Crane Fans

Great news to start the year with.  The 2021 breeding season resulted in 15 fledged juveniles joining our Somerset flock.  An excellent outcome and beyond expectations.  The  young cranes are still with their parents and observed regularly settling in to their environment.  Another first is that none of the originally released birds went missing last year.  That is certainly a relief.  The Annual Report is now uploaded to the website under the 'News' tab and you can read all the details there. 

Only a few weeks to go before the breeding pairs start feeling in the mood and in fact they visit their territories quite frequently - just keeping an eye on things and making sure there is no competiton.  It is not surprising that we are hoping for another good year, as more of the younger birds reach maturity and more pairs are formed.  Hopefully the weather will be kind at the right time and keep the nesting areas in good condition.

Wishing you all a good year too.
