Flight of the Stork
Flug der Störche
Every spring, there is a unique annual gathering just a few miles from Austria's capital Vienna: Some sixty pairs of white storks come here to mate and breed. This film accompanies these white storks on their seasonal journeys between Central Europe and their African winter quarters. Innovative camera technology offers thrilling and surprising insights into the bird's lives, from their egg-shell cradle to their long flight back to Africa in late summer.
