Bugling cranes

A text from Steve alerting me to two Common Cranes viewable from Riverbank Road, Heswall had me dashing from the office and heading home for the camera before setting off on the short journey up the Wirral.
Arriving on site I found the RSPB out in full force along with finder Steve Hind and a handful of other locals. After viewing the birds distantly through  Colin's 'scope I set the camera up incase the birds decided to fly. They did! They took off calling to each other before flying a bit closer and heading off inland to the east. A fantastic sight and a Cheshire tick for me.
