This new box is part of a collaboration with Knepp Estate and their pioneering re-wilding project. These eggs are the same as the salted caramel in the cuckoo egg box which were selected as a Best Buy and given 5 stars in Jeremy Lee’s (Quo Vadis) taste test for the Observer last Easter.
Knepp have written the following for us…
White storks have been missing from Britain for 600 years. In 2016 the White Stork Project began a reintroduction program, and the first wild stork chick hatched at Knepp in 2020, in the top of an oak tree. Now you can see them everywhere at Knepp, circling in the thermals, nesting in our trees and throwing their heads back in their celebratory bill-clatter. [/quote]
