Many cranes, hooded crows of Rügen island, Germany

This August 2016 video says about itself:

A seaside holiday on Rügen | Check-in

Check-in presenter Lukas Stege explores Germany’s biggest island. He tries out standup paddleboarding on the Baltic, stokes the Racing Roland steam locomotive and samples a typical island specialty.

On 7 October 2018, we departed to Rügen island in Germany.

An island where now, during the autumn migration, many birds from Scandinavia arrive: from big birds like cranes and sea eagles, to the smallest birds of Europe: goldcrests.

We had planned to go to Rügen earlier. However, the ship supposed to take us there, never made it to Rügen as there was a storm.

As we departed at 7:25 am from Deventer railway station, a carrion crow with unusual white feathers among its black feathers.

Later, at 10:30 past Osnabrück, a buzzard flying, with the sun reflecting on its wings.

At 11:35 we passed the former nazi concentration camp Belgen-Belsen, where Anne Frank and so many others were murdered.

At the other side of the road, a roe deer.

In the afternoon, six roe deer running to a pond to drink.

16:45: we are on Rügen island. Scores of migrating cranes on a field.

This 9 November 2017 video shows dancing cranes on migration on Rügen island in Germany.

17:15 in Sassnitz: a hooded crow along the road.

Later in the day, we arrived in Lohme village to spend the night there.

A great cormorant flying over the Baltic sea as the sun sets. Two herring gulls on a jetty. Three mute swans swimming.

As we walk back, a bat flies in the evening dusk.

Stay tuned!
