The lonely Crane

30 12 2011

Last tuesday Manolo García and me saw a flock of 10 cranes in active migration above Montjuic. One of them seemed to be tired or injured and all the time lagged behind. The rest of the flock came back, probably to carry on it, and the last image we saw was a flock of 9 cranes with one lonely crane behind heading southwards.

By chance, Xavi Larruy was working that morning in the airport, placed together with the Llobregat Delta. We had guess the cranes would landed in that area but it seemed birds just flew by. Late in the afternoon, Xavi saw a lonely crane landing at La Ricarda fields and the following days a crane has been seen at la Maresma de les Filipinas. The bird seems healthy, eating everytime, althought nobody has seen it flying… Let’s see how theLlobregat Delta can help a bird injured during migration.
