  • A pair of cranes are nesting on a rewetted bog in the Midlands, Bord na Móna has confirmed.
  • If they successfully breed, it is believed they will be the first common cranes to do so in Ireland for 300 years.
  • The location of the nest, on a cutaway bog once used to harvest peat for energy production, is confidential to protect the birds.
