Frogs & Cranes at Burgh Castle......

 

A couple of days spent in Burgh Castle (19th and 20th) saw 7 Cranes flying over Haddiscoe Island (19th) calling.  Large White, Holly Blue and Large Red Damselfly were in the Marina Park garden, where the Common Frogs in the newly constructed pond made fine photographic subjects.
