Cranes not only used feeding areas between the cities of Stralsund and Barth, but also frequently use stubble fields southwest of Barth and northeast of Ribnitz-Damgarten. To provide visitors with guidance and information in that region as well, a mobile Crane Information Mobile (CIM) was constructed. The CIM is a modified construction trailer, fitted with information material, binoculars and a field scopew, while two dedicated crane rangers give information and guidance to visitors. During the last years, the Crane Information Mobile was placed during the main autumn staging season at Hermannshof southwest of the town of Barth.
From autumn 2017 onwards, the Crane Information Mobile will be situated at a new place in the southwestern corner of the town Zingst (gps-coordinates: 54,42555 N, 12,67452 E), which allows us to futher intensify our visitor guidance and information. From the new spot, visitors can watch the daily evening flight of cranes to the roost site at the nearby island Kirr.
The CIM will be opened at the new place Zingst on 10th of September 2017 and crane observers are welcomed from 16:00 - 20:30 o'clock in September and from 14:00 - 19:00 o'clock in October. A visit there is very worthwhile. Any changes of the location as well as of the opening hours are announced at our website and via www.facebook.com/kranichschutz.
