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.
Gradually, the cranes woke up.
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 …
… and yet more cranes …
… and yet more cranes.
Though many cranes flew away, for the moment many stayed as well.
As the sun rose further, more cranes started flying …
… encouraging others to fly as well.
Stay tuned, as there will be more on this blog about 4 October 2016 near Kamp village!
