"Cranes had their most successful year in the UK since the 17th Century with a
record-breaking 72 pairs, conservationists said.
The common crane was absent as a breeding bird for 400 years due to wetland
drainage and hunting.
But now the UK's tallest bird has made a strong comeback since a small number
returned to Norfolk's Broads in 1979."
