Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

Ex­tinct by the 17th Cen­tury, Cranes started the first strides of re­cov­ery as a Bri­tish breed­ing bird in the early 1980s when they reap­peared in Nor­folk. Ten years af­ter the launch of Bird Watch­ing there were three pairs in Nor­folk, with 1997 see­ing the first young­ster raised since 1988. Since then, they have spread to the Brecks and the Fens, and with a help­ing hand from a rein­tro­duc­tion scheme are be­com­ing es­tab­lished in the south-west of Eng­land. There are about 15 pairs now nest­ing each year.
