I know very liitle about Whooper Cranes (if that is indeed what it is), but I do know they build their nests as high as humanly possible (oe should that be birdly possible?!), presumable to protect their eggs and young from other birds. I thought this was quite incredible, how the crane doesn't just frazzle do death is beyond me. Maybe electricity pylons are a lot safer than we think.
This is in Turkey by the way, near Lake Bafa, so a long drive if you are UK based!
All comments, jokes, captions, awards (dream on) very welcome indeed.
