Crane migration
Just had a load of cranes fly over head, heading south from the Polish border through NE Slovakia. The noise was incredible

I can imagine how noisy they must have been and a great aerial formation you've captured.

Oh my!!! What a wonderful sight that must have been... and sound too no doubt.

That's an excellent picture you've taken of these cranes Ed... I hope you get to see them when they return in the Spring.

Thanks for showing it to us lad.
Thanks everyone. It was just another random event in my garden - I heard them long before I saw them. Shame my FZ300 couldn't zoom in closer but they were pretty high up.
