Remarks :This site totals approximately 1,608,000 ha, and is an important nesting area for the eastern population of Siberian Crane. In the summer of 2013 some 500-550 individuals were counted on the reserve. What I observed there, about 75 % of the individuals should be adults. That means that there have been some 180 - 200 breeding pairs. - JT
