Our own Royal babies......Blue Crane chicks on the way!

South Africa's national bird, the Blue Crane has decided to make a home at Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve.  The couple were spotted making a home on the island just outside the Shed.  They have 2 eggs and have made a beautiful nest in the safety of the island.  They take 30 days to incubate and when the babies are born, it will take 3 to 5 months before they fly.  Their breeding season is between September and February.  Watch this space for pics of the newborn chicks in the next few weeks.
