Common Cranes at Cockersand

On 12th October 2014 Stuart Piner photographed three Common Cranes flying south over Cockersand at 13:03. Before reaching the Fylde the birds had flown over Sunderland Point at 13:00 and later that afternoon the birds flew over Seaforth LWT, Merseyside at 14:40. The birds therefore travelled at 22.4 mph over 36.2 miles between Cockersand and Seaforth.
