Gallocanta, the crane paradise

With the first cold days of autumn thousands of cranes arrive from the north to spend the winter in the Iberian Peninsula; many of them will stay at Gallocanta throughout the winter.
Watching them against a cloudless sky tinted with red is probably one of the most beautiful of all of nature’s spectacles.
Undoubtedly it is interesting to look deeper into the characteristics and ways of life of these and many other birds that can be seen at Gallocanta.
