Great Bustard Group

Great Bustard Group LogoThe Great Bustard Group (GBG) was set up in 1998 to explore the possibility of reintroducing the Great Bustard to the UK. In 2003, the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs issued a 10-year trial-licence to release Great Bustards in the UK. By using chicks incubated from eggs from destroyed nests in Russia, GBG has successfully reintroduced a number of the birds into its Salisbury Plain site. Together with a local branch of London Camera Exchange, we helped to equip one of their hides with spotting scopes to allow visitors to get a closer look at these huge, magnificent birds.
