The first migrating cranes gather together with the local ones. Today I already counted 500. I guess there are around 5000 cranes in the area. In a month there will be 130.000.

Moments before the Sun rises on the horizon first masses of cranes getting airborne, leaving the lakes around heading towards feeding-places around. They fly some km to harvested field to feed and come back in the evening. It took half an hour before all cranes left the place.
