This video shows Eurasian cranes in Gallocanta, Spain.
Recently, a report on animals of the Dwingelderveld, the Netherlands, in 2006, came out. About birds, it says:
Species that are gone or almost gone include hobby, black grouse, grey partridge, black tern and black-tailed godwit. Red-necked grebe, marsh harrier [see also here], bluethroat and red-backed shrike are new species. Especially the list of species who have increased is encouragingly long, including dabchik, black-necked grebe, water rail, woodcock [see also here], lesser spotted woodpecker, woodlark and stonechat. Also, cranes have started to spend the summer here. In 2007, this resulted in a couple of cranes nesting.
