Ham Wall RSPB is great.

The Sheppey Inn, Lower Godney is a great pub & does good dinners too.

For Cranes try the bridge to the east of Stathe looking SE. Had 4 there yesterday. 30 odd Cattle Egrets roost on Ham Wall with Great White Egrets. The Starling roost is spectacular and there are plenty of raptors around it. Also there are Hawfinches in quite a lot of the churchyards at the moment.
