Common Cranes love Europe's largest artificial lake

The largest artificial lake in Europe plays host to southward migrating Common Cranes at this time of year.   The lake, Lac Der-Chantecoq, is located 150 kilometres east of Paris. Common Cranes are among the thousands of migratory birds that stop-over while heading heading south to Spain.   The lake was created in 1974 and quickly became a safe haven for avian migrants.
