Eurasian cranes wake up, photos


Sunrise, 4 October 2016

As this blog reported, on 3 October 2016 our ship had arrived in Kamp village in Germany. In the evening, we had seen many Eurasian cranes and geese on autumn migration arrive to sleep in the wetlands. Next morning, we went there again, around sunrise.

Some of them started to fly in the morning light.

More and more cranes started flying from their sleeping quarters to places where they might find food …

Yet more cranes

And yet more cranes

Cranes flying and standing

Though many cranes flew away, for the moment many stayed as well.
