The dance ofthe cranes on Lake Hornborgasjön

In the spring, the cranes in thousands come to the Trandansen. The first cranes usually arrive in Hornborgasjön already in mid-March, but most cranes usually do so in early April.
During the summer, they lie discreetly on marshes and forests in the north of Sweden. Then when the kids have learned the art of flying, the birds move south and by mid-August and September the cranes are again at Hornborgasjön.
The highest listing is from April 3, 2019, when no less than 27,300 cranes were gathered in the area below the information center Trandansen at the southern tip of the lake.
