The drought since 2018 continues to affect the gray cranes (Grus grus) in the northeast. As crane expert Wolfgang Mewes told the German Press Agency, the birds were only able to raise about a third of the usual offspring in 2020. The main reason for this is the dry nesting opportunities, which has to do with a lack of precipitation and lower water levels since summer 2018. The total population could still compensate for this. Mewes is a member of the board of the German crane protection working group.

Currently, the collection of domestic cranes has started. The first large birds from Scandinavia and Poland have already rested in Western Pomerania and on the Baltic coast. "In the east, the rest begins earlier, it has to do with the train routes," explained Mewes.

The endangered whooping crane , a species that has dangled on the brink of extinction before, is facing new troubles in Texas as the drought continues.

During the breeding season in spring 2020, around half of the crane nests had too little water. In 2019 it was between 70 and 85 percent of the nests. That is why cranes did not breed in the first place or the clutches were targets of "predators" who otherwise shy away from the water, such as raccoon dogs, foxes and raccoons. Since cranes can live to be 20 to 25 years old, their population, which has grown strongly over the years, remains stable despite the low rate of offspring.

At the moment, those interested can experience the gray cranes in larger groups, for example on Lake Galenbeck and near Koblentz (Vorpommern-Greifswald). Around 900 animals can be seen in the Langenhägener Seewiesen near Goldberg and around 1000 cranes in the Müritz National Park, where there are special tours. Those interested can also watch the birds from ships on the Müritz peninsula Großer Schwerin near Röbel and on the Krümmeler See. "Around 3,000 cranes are already in the Western Pomerania lagoon landscape, many of which come from southern Sweden to collect," Mewes explained. The Warta Estuary National Park near Lebus in Poland has already reported up to 6,000 cranes.

By early July, at least 300 elephants were found dead under mysterious conditions in Botswana. Monday, September 21, local authorities announced that they had clarified the death of these elephants. They are said to have succumbed to toxins produced by cyanobacteria in the water. The images had shocked.

The dry weather in North and South Dakota is capturing a lot of attention. It's wreaking havoc on pastures and hay crops and forcing some ranchers to sell

The peak of the crane rest is expected at the beginning of October at Zingst, when tens of thousands of large birds stop at the Baltic coast on their migration from Norway and Sweden to the south. Just as many cranes from the Baltic States and Poland can then be found in Linumer Bruch in Brandenburg.

crane protectors had recently registered around 10,000 breeding pairs in Germany. 5000 pairs of them live in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. This is followed by Brandenburg (2750), Lower Saxony (1500), Saxony-Anhalt (660), Schleswig-Holstein (550) and Saxony with 300 breeding pairs.
