Valentine’s Eurasian Cranes
As the mating season begins, wardens at Pensthorpe Natural Park in Norfolk, are watching these Eurasian Cranes closely to see whether they will bond for life this year. These love birds, who have a love of the natural world and fresh air, are likely to be spending Valentine’s Day doing their rather unusual courtship dance in a bid to seal the deal.
The Pensthorpe Conservation Trust is committed to habitat and species conservation. It works alongside partner organisations on long-term projects to conserve and reintroduce key species. For more information go to www.pensthorpetrust.org.uk
