A welcome from Amy and Roland

Amy King and Roland Digby

Welcome to the Great Crane Project news and blog updates!  We'll be using our blogs to share the stories of the project. Here's a little piece of news from us of what we've been up to, getting ready for the arrival of the eggs from Germany.  Find out more about how it's all going to happen by visiting the Process page and also visit the Crane School page to see more of what we'll be up to in the coming months ahead. 

Final preparations and a radio interview

My first blog!  Very very exciting times for me - following a year of preparation, consent gaining, awareness raising, construction and planning  and all seems to be finally coming together.  

We have just received the last bits of paperwork from Animal Health (DEFRA) to bring the eggs back via Heathrow, and are just double checking the process for getting the eggs onto and off the Lufthansa plane in Hamburg and Heathrow.
