Germany's Wild North
Whoever thinks the north of Germany is just for holidays at the Baltic and the North Sea is sorely mistaken. Beyond the beaches lie natural treasures, worth being discovered. Germany’s northernmost state is home to an unexpected biodiversity: In the autumn, forest clearings become showgrounds for red and fallow deer stags. Dramatic fights break out, accompanied by deep roars and the sound of clashing antlers. Further north millions of starlings are darkening the sky on their annually migration. In spring short-eared owls are courting in mid-air, lizards are hatching from tiny eggs and reclusive vipers are mating in the undergrowth.
Filmmaker Uwe Anders spent two years observing the wildlife of Germany’s north: A region that defies all expectations with its incredible biodiversity and spectacular animal behaviour.
