SPLENDOUR OF COLOUR AND MIGRATORY BIRDS
When late summer comes, the tanned blades of grass sway in the wind and the greater knapweed shines with its purple flowers. On hot days there are a lot of dragonflies by the lake.
Now the harvesting of hay at Lake Hornborga is in full swing. The harvesting of hay, the grazing animals and the management of the nature reserve is a prerequisite for there to be so many species and beautiful nature here.
With late summer and autumn, more and more migratory birds are beginning to fly over the lake. Tens of thousands of birds can be walking on the lake at the same time. They stop to eat before continuing their journey southwards.
The cranes are now also gathered again at Lake Hornborga. During the autumn, you will see them especially in the evenings, when they fly to the lake to sleep. We suggest that you get to Trandansen just before sunset. Then you can experience thousands of cranes flying over you with their characteristic cries echoing across the landscape as a melancholic greeting that autumn has arrived.
