Deutschlands wilder Norden - Schleswig Holstein

Dramatic stag fights, mating flights of short-eared owls, lizards hatching from tiny eggs, mating rituals of shy European adders and gigantic flocks of starlings darkening the sky. For more than two years, wildlife filmmaker Uwe Anders has captured the behaviour of animals in Schleswig-Holstein - in a man-made environment with an amazing biodiversity and spectacular animal behaviour.
