3: 10 Jun 2024 Crane, flying over Helton near Lowther

Location: Helton

Name: Raymond Clark

Driving up the Lowther valley ,going through Helton  I was suprised to see flying above the road was what I first thought was a Stork,   then Crane. Seemed to be in no hurry,  I  later texted a friend and he said he had one fly over his place recently  at Shap Lodge,  he thought Lowther were doing a re introduction  of them,  so maybe its from Lowther.
