Crane Migration

This is the breath-taking sight of thousands of cranes stopping off at a lake during a mass migration across the continent. The amazing images were taken by Liron Hamelnick, 29, at Hula Lake Park in north Israel. The birds pass through the Israeli skies twice a year and use the lake as a stopover while travelling between Europe and Africa. The photographer set out at 2am in order to get to the lake – known as Agamon HaHula in Hebrew – in time for the beautiful sunrise.
