My Friday noon forecast about the arriving migration wave of cranes has been confirmed. Our sat cranes from this summer, „Loode“, „Liiva“ and „Paslepa“ that were hatched at Sõrve in Saaremaa, Liiva in Muhu and Paslepa in Läänemaa respectively started their migration in the morning of October 6, and „Mustakurmu“ from Põlvamaa in the morning of October 7.

Dear Crane Friends!

 

It is a pleasure to tell you that the cranes equipped with satellite transmitters in Estonia (the sat cranes, 10 altogether) are alive and well and have started their autumn migration flights too.
