Strutting on The Tack Piece

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

Monty, Sedge, Oakie, Cotton, Evie and Chip at WWT Slimbridge

Fantastic photo of the pair Monty & Sedge, the trio Oakie and his two suiters Cotton and Evie (hope they sort that out soon!), and the new-comer - another female, and one of the youngest cohort of release birds from 2014 - Chip, who flies with one leg at an odd dangle angle.

Huge thank you to DEREK CROPTON for sharing the photo.
