I
n spring 1981, a first crane pair arrived in the Hamburg nature preserve "Duvenstedter Brook". There are no records known of any cranes in this old moor which was under drainage and in agricultural use since the medieval ages and under protection and partial renaturalisation to wetlands since mid of the 1960s.

Over the years other crane pairs have settled in neighbouring territories within the preserve, exhibiting a slow growth in crane numbers from originally one to six pairs. The situation until 1997 has been summarized in Fig 13a. In maximum, 6 territories had been occupied in the early and mid nineties as determined by visual observation. Two territories had been abandoned in 1995, PM and KHB (where the female was killed in 1995 probably by a poacher and pair #3 took over in late 95 and spring 96).
