CRANES ON PARADE PLQ2
H10" W14" D1"
Cranes became extinct in the UK in the 1600s, but a small number started breeding again in Norfolk in the 1970s. To help increase the population, the RSPB and partners re-introduced just under 100 birds to the Somerset Levels as part of the Great Crane Project. Many of these cranes have now gone on to raise chicks of their own, a good number on RSPB-managed land. Emma features a flock of cranes in all their glory, with each feather intricately tubelined. Standing proudly like soldiers on parade, this flock preen and pose for us to enjoy forever more.
