“Crane worlds - A journey with the birds of luck throughout Europe“
12. October 2022 - 08:00 p.m.
Experience the mysterious world of the cranes on their western migratory flyway together with the expert Dr. Günter Nowald. Cranes are one of the fascinating birds worldwide. Because of their graceful and mysterious dances, their trumpet like calls, their lifelong partnership, beauty and size people have developed a special relationship to these unique birds. This is reflected in the mythology, poems, legends and stories in a lot of cultures.
We start the journey from the traditional wintering area in the rough and original Extremadura in southwestern Spain and fly together with the birds of luck up to Sweden. You are hearty welcome.
"On the tracks of the crane“
Again and again these large grey birds draw our attention. Their strong calls let us take a rest and focus our view towards the sky.
In his picture-show, Karsten Peter would like to steep with you into the life of the cranes. Large flocks, intraspecific fights and courtship dances are typical scenes during the main staging periods of cranes. But quite secretly is the view into the breeding areas of cranes.
From time to time Karsten Peter interrupts his slide show about the crane year with some special poems and legends to guide you into the mythical world of the graceful birds.
"Life of cranes“
From the size of a tennis ball to a full grown adult, the life of cranes is full of magic and beauty, but also of obstacles and threats.
Together, we will explore the fascinating world of the Eurasian crane. Starting at the breeding grounds, we will begin our journey with the hatching of young cranes and follow them through the whole year.
The multimedia presentation of Sören Kaack will be full of beautiful pictures but also of interesting information to get a better understanding of the wonderful Eurasian crane.
"Cranes – Heralds of spring“
Kenneth Küper has been volunteering as a crane-ranger for six years now and has shared his enthusiasm for the fascinating nature of the Pomeranian coast with lots of guests. Since then, his deep interest in the impressive large birds has grown even further – as well as his archive of photographs! In October 2021 he started volunteering in the NABU crane center Groß Mohrdorf.
Follow Kenneth Küper to a virtual journey through different phases of the cranes‘ life. Get close to them during their resting in spring at the lake Hornborga in Sweden, listen to exciting stories about annual crane ringing acitivities and enjoy some amazing photos of the region of the Darss-Zingst bodden chain and the island of Rügen.
Let yourself be carried away by beautiful impressions to the world of the heralds of spring!
