Cranes somerset

Muddy feet and ice skating practise!

In the last month the water levels have risen bringing an expansion of the watery areas the cranes like to hang about in.

The cold must be a lot to get used to for a young crane, alongside having to suddenly share the Levels and Moors with an increasing number of wintering wildfowl and flocking starlings!

Wow, what a week this has been!
