Christmas is for Families

It’s always nice to happen upon something by chance.

As we approached a field on one of the tours last weekend it was obvious from a distance there was something large within it. As we grew nearer it became apparent that the large mass in the centre of the field wasn’t a single thing … it was four. It was a family; a family of cranes; two adults and two young – young of this year.

The juveniles were dancing … as cranes do. Stretching their wings and rising above the ground in leaps of slow motion as they practiced take-off and landing skills, no doubt impatient to take to the air as every youngster would be. Even the beautiful bugling calls were full of impatience, a little rushed and not as far crying as those of their parents.

As we watched them you could just imagine the restrained patience of the parents. Patience every parent needs to show when faced with excited children … especially at Christmas.
