Autumn Sights: Common Cranes

Every autumn, from late September, through October to early November, 10s of 1000s of Common Cranes Grus grus gather in the Hortobagy National Park, Hungary. These graceful birds linger in eastern Hungary before heading on south as winter sets in. Numbers have steadily increased in recent years and peaked last week at about 140,000. It is a great event and experience of sights and sounds.
