WINGED MIGRATION
WINGED MIGRATION


SYNOPSIS
The story of travelling birds is that of a promise... the promise to return. If they accomplish journeys, often of several thousand kilometres, beset with dangers, if they cross the highest mountains, boundless oceans, burning deserts, if they encounter bad weather, all this is in response to a vital necessity: survival. Their migration is a fight for life. In the northern hemisphere springtime they fly off towards the arctic lands, the ones where they were born...
