Don't shoot the messenger ~ possible Crane sighting

At about 19.50hrs this evening my wife and daughter saw what they are convinced was a Crane flying over the A385 near the Rattery junction the bird was flying out towards the Diptford direction.

Having looked at images on the internet and birding books they are convinced that what they saw was a Crane describing a very large dark grey bird (far larger than a Heron) and flying with a distinctively extended neck and very graceful flight.
