Arriving at the site where i saw it on Saturday i soon relocated the Common Crane, but this time in a field much closer to the river bank. The light was good with very little wind so there would be a good chance of a more clearer picture.
The Crane showed very well, almost filling the view through the scope. Attached is the best photo i could get, which is slightly better than the one i had taken on Saturday.
I stayed for about half an hour. Driving away from Southease bridge i noticed a very large bird flying towards me so i quickly brought the car to a halt and watched the Crane fly right over me heading towards Rodmell. Awesome bird!
