This blog is about my birding exploits, which mainly take place in the Weymouth/Portland area, in Dorset. Will also include stuff from elsewhere, plus some other critters too. Hope you enjoy.

Cranes

Dipped on these yesterday, but finally caught up with them today, although it did take two attempts in order to get decent views.

The only view of them this morning at Dewlish.

A mad dash back in the afternoon to Puddletown water meadows afforded much better views of these splendid juveniles.


No bling, so not plastic.


Looking alert.

And they're off.

It takes a running take-off.


Truly majestic creatures.
