Heading for the cleared fields for food

 

Crane         Sookurg       Grus grus

 

At the computer I counted altogether 2 800 cranes in the Põgari-Sassi crane webcam from 7.15 to 8.10 in the morning, flying from their overnight quarters towards the fields in the Tuuru - Jõõrde direction. The outward flight ended at 8.15.

8.30 - 8.37: 170 more cranes passed the Põgari-Sassi camera in the same direction
