Stanley cranes nesting

The Stanley cranes have just laid; as you can see they don’t construct much of a nest. They are likely to lay two eggs and incubation takes around 30 days. Unfortunately, for the last couple of years their eggs have been infertile.

The main breeding population of this vulnerable species is found in South Africa, with small numbers in Namibia and Swaziland.
