Common Crane at Walmsley 3rd Jan 2019 "A flying visit"!



A distant shot of this Common Crane that briefly dropped into our reserve at Walmsley sanctuary.

It may have been there overnight as it was first spotted by John Mitchell at first light but it was gone again by 11 o'clock.
Disturbed by the noisy squabblings of Canada geese it took off and soon gained height in a South-Easterly direction.
