I just couldnt resist going to see the Common Crane at Kibblesworth on Saturday 10th August. With help of a local I quickly found the bird in the middle of a huge field . It was over 200 yards away, with no way of getting much closer. What a super bird this is! I put my scope magnification up to 60x and hoped for the best in poor light. There is no way dSLR s could cope with this distance. But I managed a half decent record shot through the digiscope.
Moved on to Lamesley where there was a brief glimpse of Kingfiser, then onto Thornley Woodland Centre -only Jay of any note, and then Far Pasture with only Little Grebe and heron worth taking pics of
