Corncrakes Return

Corncrake numbers have soared in Orkney and the place which has attracted most is Westray, where 16 males have been reported by RSPB Scotland this summer. Details appear in a BBC website item. The island has 17 sandy beaches that appeal to humans, but why the birds have been flocking is possibly explained by a change in farming practices.
