This link gives information about threats and flyways of the European Crane (Grus grus). Being ground breeders cranes are exposed to many dangers. To protect their young from natural enemies they build their nests in shallow waters such as swamp forests or silted up lakes and ponds. In the last decades however many wetlands have fallen victim to the rising demand for land used in intensive farming and house building. It is not only in the breeding areas that this loss makes itself felt. In particular along the Adriatic Flyway there are now too few undisturbed resting places where the cranes can pick up energy for the exhausting onward flight. In the last 60 years 80 percent of the resting places on the Adriatic coast have been severely degraded or destroyed.
