Wintering in France
After the breeding season, Common Cranes (Grus grus) in northern Europe gather in sometimes large numbers to migrate south to winter in warmer areas. These are powerful birds capable of travelling up to 1,553 miles (2,500 km) before reaching their destination. They spend the winter in North Africa or in southern Europe (south of Spain).
