Cranes are now rare breeding birds in the UK having established small populations in East Anglia, the Somerset Levels, Humberside and some parts of Scotland. What amazing birds they are, and they make amazing noises too.
Here are some Cranes singing to each other. These are not UK recordings but if you were very lucky you might hear this noise at a wetland near you over the coming years – the population is slowly increasing.
Here are Cranes from Berlin, Germany;
and from Belarus;
and from Finland;
They are worth having back just for the sound of them – but they look amazing too.
