Unsere Meere - Naturwunder Ostsee

In the depths between Bornholm and the Finnish Archipelago, between the islands of Estonia and the chalk cliffs of Møn, both large- and small-scale dramas play out. We watch eider ducklings trying to escape the attacks of seagulls. Sea trout defy all odds ascending the brooks of their birth. But we also experience the problems grey seals have with global warming.
