RIP Howard.

Sadly something that we were all pretty sure of, was confirmed on Saturday the 22nd of January, when some of our volunteers found some of the missing cranes "Howard's," leg rings and her transmitter. Although no remains were found, the rings could not have come off the bird whilst it was still alive.

RIP Howard

It is always sad to loose any of the birds as we have all become very attached to them over the course of the project, it is however, a fact of life once the birds are free living. Never the less, to still still have 18 healthy birds flying around the moors and levels after all this time is an excellent out come and one that at the start of the release we would have never dared to hope for.
