Seeing that Plodding Birder had seen the one on Walland Marsh as recent as Sunday on Monday a trip to to Ham Street garden centre was the perfect excuse to take another look.
Thirty minutes walking from the Woolpack I came across hundreds of Greylags, hundreds of Lapwing and even more Golden Plover. Circa 10 Marsh Harriers came into roost on the reed bed at Little Cheyne Court. Another 30 minutes of searching with the scope and the light fading there it was, quite distant but deffinately a COMMON CRANE.
