The beginning of his story...
Unable to nest on the Nene Washes due to flooding, Pickles's parents nested on nearby farmland. His egg, caked in mud, was collected on 26 April 2018.

Back to the wild...
Along with his sister Pip, Pickles was released on Lady Fen at WWT Welney on 9 June. Pickles and Pip were the oldest and first birds to be released in 2018.

And his story continues...
October 2018. Pickles is spotted in France.

Will he make it back to the UK to breed in 2019? Where's Pip?

How was he named?
Pickles was suggested by @kirsten_fernand when we asked for name ideas on social media. Too cute to resist!
