Migration ...

This late flock of Common Cranes passed overhead yesterday afternoon and Mausi managed to get a picture of them. Yesterday a flight of this size passed overhead at intervals of about 5 - 10 minutes, all heading in the same direction and all following the same flight path. As we are on the Approach Path for Frankfurt am Main airport, I hope Air Traffic is able to track them ...

Close-up images of the birds can be found at Photographers Direct.

Autumn is now definitely here. Temperatures have plunged in the last couple of days and it only barely got to 10*C today - though in the wind it fely colder. The birds obviously plan a much warmer winter location!
