NEW VIDEO HERE FROM DODGE:
I spent the morning bugging with Gripper and Nick and didn't see much in the way of birds apart from the 2 LRP and a Yellow Wagtail.
I went back to the obs and shortly after Roger called to say that a Common Crane was going overhead. By the time I got to the window it had gone over the top and I thought I missed it. However 5 minutes later it returned and then circled Hackbridge and the Farmlands for about 10-15 minutes before finally departing off to the northwest.
This is the 4th record of Crane at Beddington in just under a year previous to which it had been unrecorded.
