Crane numbers increasing by the day

News from the Hortobagy in the east of Hungary is that the Common Cranes are now arriving in numbers. It is only the 1st of October but around 20,000 are already present. Last year saw a record count of about 100,000 at the end of October. The number of these gangly birds stopping over in autumn has steadily increased in recent decades... what will this year bring?
