The pair of cranes which bred at WWT Welney are providing great opportunities to watch them. The single chick is growing and will soon be taller than much of the vegetation around it. We have only seen one chick, so it could be that the second egg did not hatch. But with two doting parents looking out for this one youngster, we hope that it will continue to do well in the coming weeks.
Elevated views of the area the cranes are using can be had from the cafe veranda. We have a scope available here, which you can use to view the family.
