Crane Spotting – Ashley Grove

Ashley says:-

“The Lake Hornborga area of Sweden plays host to one of the most incredible bird spectacles to be seen in Europe, with over 25,000 Common Cranes stopping here to feed on their journey to more northerly breeding grounds.

This talk centres around these birds, but includes other wildlife that make this area so special to visit in the early Spring.  All five European Grebe species can be seen at this time and top birds like White-tailed Eagle, Hawfinch and Capercaillie are other highlights.”

This illustrated presentation will take place at St Bridget’s Church Centre, Church Road, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 7HL.
