Cranes and Tree Sparrows

While Brian and I were enjoying the beautiful Pallid Harrier at Welney we were also entertained by the largest flock of Tree Sparrows I've seen in Norfolk for years. In the past Flitcham, Choseley and Waxham were all sites where Tree Sparrows were easily found, but that is no longer the case: at Welney they are still very abundant!

Other birds of note included a flock of six Common Cranes that joined a group of three that were already on the reserve and a pair of Whooper Swans that over-summered: always good to see these elegant birds up close in the sunshine!
