A trio of Cranes

Standing at the top of Long Lane as the sea fret rolled back and the sun burned through this morning, these three Common Cranes appeared in off the sea, heart-stoppingly low and up-close, as they cruised south-east over the bay. A fabulous, talismanic bird in an otherwise extended barren spell, and a timely reminder of why the effort's worth it.
