WWT London: White-Naped Cranes
Longer-limbed in large.
We had an adorable-animal-filled time at WWT London in Barnes in the afternoon. It was pretty quiet there, and even the animals were pretty snoozy. It's taken me ages to sort through my 400 pictures, and I struggled to choose my blip. This isn't my favourite photo, but the cranes were probably my less-familiar favourite, so I thought I'd blip them for a change...
