Bustards looking their best

Posted on Friday, March 15th, 2013

Several displaying male bustards are currently a daily sight at our release site. The most impressive of these is Purple 5, the oldest male great bustard living in the wild in the UK. Dave Kjaer has recently taken this superb series of photographs of P5 looking his absolute best. Visits to the project through March and April are likely to be rewarded with similar sightings.

    Great images! My first Great Bustards were among a flock of 109 on the plains east of Madrid Spain in 2001. What a fantastic creatue. I’ll keep my toes and fingers crossed that they survive in the UK.
