Stately Cranes



Whilst working in Broadland today, I was fortunate to firstly hear and see around 35 Pink- footed geese flying over Martham Library in a "V" formation flying south west. I spent half of my lunchbreak looking for Cranes and was spectacularly successful when firstly,  I saw 3 flying south over Brograve Farm and then even better nearby I saw an incredible flock of 16 Cranes standing in a field, not far from the road.
I parked and watched them (being very careful to stay within my car) from the side of the track as they walked and fed but something spooked them and all 16 flew off in a south- westerly direction.
