Bird Classes

Birds taught the basics by humans in disguise.

It’s a big moment for bird lovers: for the first time in more than 400 years, Britain is re-introducing cranes into the country. It won’t be easy, but the cranes have got some special helpers: human crane teachers.

According to the RSPB’s Grahame Madge, cranes were once found throughout the UK. But they died out in the 1600s in the UK, the victims of hunting and loss of habitat as wetlands were drained. These days, there are a few isolated populations in the UK. However, the Great Crane Project (by conservation groups the WWT, the RSPB and Pensthorpe Conservation Trust) aims to re-establish a sustainable breeding population in Somerset – from where it is hoped they will spread. The conservation groups are working with local landowners to provide suitable areas for the birds.
