Cranes in frozen England

Cranes forage in the frosty fog of Somerset in the second Big Freeze of 2010.  They have been freed in a secret location as part of the Great Crane Project, which aims to have these remarkable birds breeding in the UK again.  Photo from the Guardian’s Week in Wildlife gallery.
