End of an Aussie era.


-Harry on West Sedgemoor - February 2014

Today we bid farewell to Harry Nevard, The Pensthorpe Conservation Trust's aviculturist who has been working on the project since 2011.  Harry has been the surrogate crane dad to four years of chicks.  With the final rearing done, and the cranes doing well out in the wild, Harry returns to Queensland, Australia tomorrow to finish his degree course.   He's going to be missed by all the team - and he'll sadly miss the day that he becomes a Somerset crane granddad - in a few weeks time this Spring - with a bit of luck!

For anyone who has had the pleasure to meet and work with Harry, I'm sure you will all join me in wishing him all the very best for the future.
