Crane Country

  • Duration: 16 minutes
  • Released: 2010

Cranes are among Europe's largest birds, well-loved for their enthusiastic and amusing display dances as well as their primeval, bugle-like call. Starting in 2010, The Great Crane Project team has ambitious plans to re-introduce European cranes to the south west of England, helping to restore a healthy population throughout the UK, so that people can once again experience these beautiful birds. This is the story so far.
