A year of saving nature: Avocets bred at Pulborough Brooks for the first time ever. Stone-curlews on RSPB reserves had their best year yet - from 23 pairs in 2019 to 29 pairs in 2020. Spoonbills fledged 7 young on RSPB Havergate Island in 2020. It's the first successful nesting in Suffolk in 300 years. One third of all UK cranes are found on RSPB nature reserves.
