SURBITON - Digital Image Lecture - Crane Spotting


Tuesday 20th September 2022

Spring each year sees Lake Hornborgan in Sweden, play host to one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles to be witnessed in Europe, with in excess of 20,000 Common Cranes flocking here to feed, before dispersing to breed in Northern Europe. These majestic birds pair up here and can be seen performing there energetic courtship dances among the masses.

Large numbers of other wildfowl remain to breed around the lake including Whooper Swans, Pintail, Wigeon and various Geese. But this area is also well blessed with Grebes, Red-necked, Slavonian, Little & Great-crested breed here, with Black-necked passing through at this time.

This talk will show you what a 'must visit' destination this is, offering not only the amazing sights and sounds of the Cranes, but other special bird species like, Black Grouse, Capercaillie, Black Woodpecker, Eagle Owl and Hawfinch, plus mammals to include Beaver, Red Squirrel and Moose.

The talk is to be held on behalf of Surbiton & District Birdwatching Society, at Surbiton Library, on the corner of Ewell Road and Berrylands Road. KT5 8RA
