Thousands of cranes heading North today. Amazing to think that they have been doing this since the end of the last Ice Age; One of the great sights of the South West. Watch them and you're seeing the same thing as Cro magnon Man.

Saw hundreds heading north over the ile dOleron last Sunday too. A welcome sign heralding spring.

what a cool thought, wish I could see them from here! Used to think the same thing when I lived further north & saw the storks flying over head
