Breeding Cranes

The RSPB’s Lakenheath reserve is well known amongst birders as one of the best places to see (or try to see) Golden Oriole. Well now it has another spectacular bird as a resident, breeding Common Cranes.

If you have never seen a Crane in the wild they are a spectacular sight. I’ve seen them once. I wandered into the Bittern Hide at Hickling Broad and was amazed to find two sitting out in the open. I sat entranced as they were “buzzed” by Marsh Harriers.
