A ground-breaking conservation project began in 2000 to re-establish a wild breeding population of corncrakes back into the English countryside at the RSPB's Nene Washes nature reserve. This film tells the roller coaster story of the first 10 years.
The Corncrake Re-introduction Project is a partnership of the RSPB, Natural England, the Zoological Society of London and Pensthorpe Conservation Trust.
