Sad news from WWT Slimbridge

Bad news from WWT Slimbridge on their Slimbridge Sightings twitter page

BABY CRANE UPDATE - Well some sad news to report this morning. Our Crane chick on the Rushy has not made it. Let's hope they do better next year.

Initial post mortem results on the baby Crane show underlying lung & kidney disease were the cause of death.

Two parents, one chick so far

Monty and Sedge are proving to be good parents with one chick already. They keep returning to egg number two so fingers crossed!  Keeping watching http://www.wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/slimbridge/experience/webcam/

Success at WWT Slimbridge!

WWT Slimbridge confirmed that they have a crane chick! One of the team photographed it this morning and they are waiting to confirm but based on second hand information it looks like it could be 24-36 hours old.  Keep watching for the second chick it is addictive viewing!
