Took a day off from the usual rounds to go and see the Common Crane in Tad Bay, Blithfield Reservoir. The bird remained on the far side of the bay while I was there. Duck numbers were clearly increasing but waders were represented by a lone Ruff, in Tad bay. My intention was to visit some Tame valley sites but as it got quite dark late afternoon and with things to do in Tamworth I decided the Crane would have to be it for the day.
