Welcome back to another week ahead! This week’s uplifting news is the reintroduction of common cranes. Between 2010 and 2014, 93 common cranes were hand-reared and released, doubling the UK population. With this initial phase of the project complete, this last year has resulted in a total of 64 pairs present, of which up to 56 have attempted to breed and fledged 23 young! Amazing work by the Great Crane Project – you can find more information about them right here on their website.
