The first successful fledging of a second generation of cranes has taken place after three years of nesting attempts on RSPB West Sedgemoor.

Ninety-four hand-reared cranes were released at the RSPB site on West Sedgemoor between 2010 and 2014.
This year three pairs of those cranes nested and reared four chicks
The three other chicks from this year are still alive at West Sedgemoor, but have not yet been seen in flight.
In total, about 65 of the original released birds survive.
