In light of the very recent hatching of two Common Crane chicks at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, it seemed fitting that I let this image jump my processing queue. This is one of the parents taken at the nest site last Thursday. That is, about 2-3 days before the hatching.

One chick hatched last year, but survived only a few days. If young are reared successfully this year, they will be the first in the UK for 400 years.

So it's congratulations and keep your fingers crossed.

A brilliant capture - it must have been wonderful to watch them (I saw the report on the television a few days ago, it was amazing to see them all flying around)

Two fine shots of this proud looking bird Malcolm, I was going to post something similar myself. It's encouraging to see that the two youngsters have survived their first few days, lets hope they make it through to adulthood
