606 years later, white cranes are nesting again in Britain


In southeastern England, a pair of tall, free-flying white cranes hit three chickens in an oak tree in West Sussex County. May 6, 2020, is a historic moment: 606 years since the last written record of white cranes breeding anywhere in Britain. Two weeks after those first chicks, another pair of cranes placed another shaggy nest in nearby Oak, and three more hats on the Canap Estate.

“This feat is beyond thrilling. We dreamed about this moment, now the stork has done it - we have British born babies again! "The project, which began in 2016, aims to install 50 breeding pairs of white cranes in southern Britain by 2030," said Tim Stark, a reproduction expert with the White Stark Project.

More than three feet tall, snow-white bodies, black wings up to seven feet, and long, red-legged, white cranes often nest on the roofs of towns and villages in Europe, where they are much preferred. Spring migrants from the winter plains in Kenya and Uganda and south to South Africa are associated with good luck and rebirth - so the fairy tale of white cranes distributes their newborns from their peaks in the slings‌. The delightful bill-cluttering of the deaf pair in the nest - with the head-throbs to embody the throat, hitting the regent with a fast blow and closing with the nose-throw - white pork with marital tenderness.

No one knows why the cranes disappeared from Britain, although their presence on the medieval dinner menu suggests that they were intended only for food. Although not 600 years old, the white stork remains an important symbol, including folk tales, children's stories, and bright manuscripts, pub and hotel symbols and surnames and surnames for centuries. Yukiko these attractive birds coming back, that the public interest is more interested in restoring nature and would probably pave the way for more species, raising hopes that the White Stork Project.

In recent months, Knapp's newcomers have become a cause for celebration - distracting themselves from the sad statistics of COVID-19 and public sympathy, whose actions have even mirrored humans under lockout. White cranes incubate eggs as soon as people scream at home in late March. In mid-May, the U.K.lifted created two sets of eggs with travel restrictions to nature areas, allowing hundreds of visitors to see chickens for themselves.

For the past few days, the first chicks have fled the nest, feeding on grass roots under their parents' eyes and roaming the nearby trees at night. In the coming weeks, as airplanes begin to open and people reach the skies once again, the courageous young storks will fly a long way, perhaps following their parents and Europe. Moving towards

Although Europe has been tough on white cranes in recent decades, they are no longer a threat. Drying of swamps, amphibian habitats and small fish that feed on birds, and the lack of pesticides suitable for their food due to pesticides, which are lethal to isions from power lines, have led to the decline of much of Europe. These losses were partially offset by reunification in France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland and Sweden.

Symbol of wide movement
The UK - one of the most endangered countries in the world, ranks 189th out of 218 countries on the Biodiversity Intensity Index run by the Predates Project - two-thirds of mammals, insects, birds and other wildlife. The 1970s saw a significant decline. The white cranes symbolize the widespread movement to repair nature in the country, of which Knap Estate and I are the pioneer led by my husband Charlie Burrell.

To kickstart natural processes, in 2000 we began rebuilding our 335 acres of farmland. It allows rivers, ponds and lakes to reproduce, dirty shrubs and trees to reproduce, and free-roaming whales such as Old English longhorn cattle, exmore ponies and Tamworth pigs are used for endangered arachnids, tarpaulins, and wildlife. Pig. Then we stood back and allowed nature to take over.

By planting, pruning, pruning, walling, and scattering seeds in my manure, these animals created a complex, novel ecosystem, with rapid and surprising results. Knapp is now home to endangered nightingales, turtle pigeons, and ple da emperor butterflies. U.K. And 13 of the 13 bat species that are home to all owls. More than 1,600 species of insects have been recorded, many of which are nationally rare. All of these creatures have taken refuge in their habitat in Naples, which is fascinated by growing habitats and food resources.

However, the white cranes need help to re-establish themselves. Every year, 20 or more birds migrate from England to Europe, but where there is no nest, they flee. Like herons and egos, a friend must die to find the number of white stork nests in the colonies, social practice and alternatives. Without the assurance of this group, they are unlikely to attempt reproduction.

European recombination projects adopted the approach of simulating a colony by separating white cranes into large pens in open countryside, using open-wing non-flying rescue birds and captive-bird birds to attract wild rural areas. Eventually, the wild birds breed with captive cranes, and their offspring migrate, eagerly returning to their natal site. (Read about the restoration of white cranes in France.)

In 2016, the government-approved White Stark Project selected Kenpi as its starter site. The project is a partnership between three private landowners and the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, an international charity founded by author Gerald Durrell to save the species from extinction; Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation, an expert in bird breeding across Europe; Cotswold Wildlife Park, a privately owned zoo in Oxfordshire. Knop's biodiversity swamps and grasslands and open trees and nests for nesting are ideal habitats for cranes. . .
