I saw my 2nd UK SANDHILL CRANE this morning at Boyton Marshes RSPB in Suffolk. It showed very well at times and was calling constantly. My 1st was on Orkney over two years ago, howvever the views were brief and distant, so i was very gald with the views today. The bird started off in Aberdeenshire and has made its way south over 8-9 days, so heres hoping it ventures into Sussex.
Also 20+ Crossbills flew over.
