Somerset cranes

2018 Crane breeding season

Great excitement here in Somerset!  At last Spring has arrived and our cranes are busy finding territory and preparing to nest. A few pairs are already sitting.  The persistent winter left many possible nest sites flooded so a late start was inevitable but since Easter the birds have been making up for lost time. It should be a good year and we are keeping everything 'crossed' for them.  The photo is of one pair calling together in their territory.
