Yes, today’s been gruesome – as in full of grues! Grues = European grey cranes, and they’ve been migrating north today with a vengeance. I can’t remember seeing so many in one day before. I reckon we’ve seen around 10,000. How cool is that!

Here are a couple of pics. Luckily I now have my new super-zoomy camera so these are some of the best grue photos I’ve taken.

Apparently they’ll keep coming all weekend, according to my grue contact at http://champagne-ardenne.lpo.fr/ Awesome!
