Cranes in flight

Where else but in Dol on Hvar! Steve's on-the-spot report of common cranes (grus grus):

18th November 2016. Not 100% sure on ID but it all makes sense -  yesterday around lunchtime we had about 200 fly over in a South Westerly direction.

It’s possible these are from Estonia heading towards Northern Africa for the Winter.

I guess I was just out at the right place and right time, fantastic sight.
