First crane egg in 400 years laid

2 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The first crane egg in southern Britain in more than 400 years has been laid by a nesting bird.

The Great Crane Project has been rearing cranes and reintroducing them to the West Country since 2010.

The egg, the first from cranes released by the project, is under round-the-clock guard at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire.

Well, the cranes had to be laying eggs somewhere (unless they live a very, very long time!).
