Signs of spring: cranes finally return north for the summer

N news agency TT reports that two thirds of the cranes that were observed earlier this month at Lake Hornborga in western Götaland have finally moved on northwards.

The sight of thousands of cranes at Lake Hornborga is usually a sign that spring has come. This year however, the lake was over-crowded with cranes, due to cold weather which prevented them from continuing on their journey north.

Every April, birds and birdwatchers alike flock to the lake when migrating cranes returning north for the summer arrive on its shores. The cranes use the lake as a stop-over point where they rest and feed before flying on to northern Sweden and Finland.
