Corncrake Reintroduction at Nene Washes

Corncrake Re-introduction Project
So far in 2006 28 young have been released, our expected total is around 80.

this large chick! became slightly tame (the only one out of 80!) and has consequently developed at above average speed - at 28 days old its as heavy as most adults.

This chick is 14 days of age.

They gain about 4 grams each
day and can fly at around 32 days.
