Two mornings ago I heard cranes calling in the fog below our house. Sarus are the only species recorded roosting there.

Today I saw 43 cranes between Atherton and Kairi, south of the road nearer to Forsayth Road. All the birds I could identify were Sarus but had a report of someone seeing 38 Sarus and 6 Brolga in the same area so they may be the same birds.
