Part of an influx to the south of England, this Crane near Langton Herring spared me the embarrassment of having Sandhill Crane on my list for the year but not Common. It flew over the Fleet as I approached and landed in a field where it seemed quite settled. Great video footage of a flock of 24 in Cornwall on the Cornwall Birding website.

Welcome to Peter Moore's wildlife blog, created largely to compensate for a failing short-term memory by providing a record of my experiences watching and photographing wildlife. I have been fortunate enough to see over 450 species of bird and 61 species of butterfly in Great Britain, photographing most of these (badly) over the course of the last 15 years.
