Migrating cranes

The Eurasian Crane is one of the most abundant of the fifteen crane species in the world with a total world population of around 400,000 birds. Their breeding range is a wide band that stretches from North West Europe east through Russia, over the Ural mountains, through Mongolia, northern China and ends in eastern Siberia.
