Big bird and Wet-my-lips......

A trip out in the north of the county today saw me visiting a couple of Common Crane's that have been visiting some potatoe fields on the side of the River Trent near West Butterwick.When i first arrived the birds were nowhere to be seen and i had to make do with watching a cracking Hobby and listening to a calling male Quail nearby,with it's distinct 'Wet-my-lips' call.When the Crane's eventually flew in they showed brilliantly,feeding and preening in the field,giving nice views through the scope and they also did some brief displaying and calling,cracking stuff!!.A few mammals where seen also and included an endearing Fox cub watched nearby and a single Roe Deer.After enjoying these beautiful birds and gorgeous mammals,i made my way home with them being still present when i left and the male Quail still calling away!.An enjoyable few hours.
