Our local Crane

This magnificent creature has been poking about the fields of the lower Ouse valley for the last few days – and finally gave itself up to the camera today for my fellow blogger Les Bird (no, that really is his name).

With a few now breeding in East Anglia and thereabouts, perhaps we’ll start seeing more touching down in our Sussex valleys on migration. Here’s hoping. I still haven’t seen this one.

One thought on “Our local Crane

  1. Went off in search of the Crane today, and lucky enough to find it (as recorded yesterday) east of the river, in a sheep field, between Piddinghoe and Southease. Also the Rodmell track produced a splendid male Merlin perching on bushes, with some close views.
