Cranes Grace the Skies....

Weathervane photo with cranesTo celebrate the hatching of the first chicks as part of the project, Rod Fender of Black Forge Art has  donated this fabulous weathervane to The Pensthorpe Trust.  This now sits proudly on top of the visitor centre at Pensthorpe, where almost as soon as it was put up, a ‘fly past’ of two wild cranes took place!  Tim Nevard, said: “Although we’re a long way in North Norfolk from the rearing and release sites at Slimbridge and in Somerset, having the weathervane here is a daily reminder of how privileged we are to be working with such fabulous birds.  We’re really grateful to Rod for his generosity – and it’s obviously a great omen for the future of the project”  

I am now on the look out for an equally generous and talented Somerset Smithy....anyone up for a challenge?!
