Grus canadensis – on my British List!

Twitching Sandhill Crane

Having spent Sunday afternoon ignoring the news about this (as I lay in the sun on the beach) we left Norwich at 5am and made our way to Boyton in Suffolk.











The Crane flew in from Havergate island at 0657, landed in the fields at 400m distance, and spent the next hour feeding as the sun rose. Having followed the news of it as it went from Aberdeenshire down the east coast of England, it unaccountably got across Norfolk without anyone seeing it and reappeared over Kessingland, en route to here. Lovely stuff! A bit dim for photos, heres some dodgy digi video
