The WWT Reserve at Slimbridge is currently proving a fantastic place to witness some pre-season strutting, posturing, and general crane shenanigans!

Signs of Spring

Here’s a lovely photo of the 2013 female crane  ‘Viridor’  and the 2014 male ‘Pecky’  – dancing away on Aller Moor near Langport.   This is a new pairing and one to watch in 2017.
