Early Bird Catching Worms

The first pre-dawn foray of the Spring this morning hoping to get better views of yesterday's Common Crane saw an 06:00 departure north. Feeding in the stubble field opposite Tilery Wood it was certainly closer than yesterday but never close enough for crippling shots with my 400mm limitation despite an hour crouched underneath the hedge trying to use psychic powers to bring it close. Perhaps some of those with longer reach may have better luck today if it stays unspooked. Numerous Hare and Roe Deer seemingly in every field along with the distant drumming of Great Spotted Woodpecker made for a pleasant ambience.

Thanks Dale, big crops would have been much easier digiscoping, I have left a question for you on one of your adaptors with just this in mind.
