Have-a-go Cosmo

Cosmo  - having a go at Albert who is trying to feed within the pen.

Despite all this aggression, the 2010 and 2011 birds are now getting along well, and regularly feeding and roosting together.

Cranes in the Community

  

Spent a lovely day on Saturday at Othery Street Fair, where the return of the cranes to Somerset was celebrated by The Othery Society.  A marvelous crane nest float, complete with new hatched chicks and painted eggs, was paraded along the street.

Siesta

A lovely moment captured by project volunteers Kevin Harris.  Some of the group of eighteen were seen napping in the afternoon sun.

There are four keeping an eye out whilst six take a siesta.  Can you spot all of them?

Four go exploring.
