Cranes suc­cess­fully raise chicks

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

For the sec­ond year run­ning, two pairs of Cranes have suc­cess­fully raised chicks at RSPB Lak­en­heath Fen. What’s more, these nor­mally se­cre­tive birds have done it all in front of rail com­muters on the Abel­lio Greater Anglia route between Ely and Nor­wich. Three chicks were fledged, one from a sec­ond nest­ing at­tempt, a first for the re­serve. An­other three chicks were suc­cess­fully raised by Cranes in the Nene Marshes re­serve, mak­ing this a par­tic­u­larly good year for fen­land Cranes. Only 25 pairs of Cranes reg­u­larly breed in the UK each year, mak­ing them one of our rarest breed­ing birds.
