About the film
Cranes are among the most ancient of birds, undertaking great migrations every year. We've never truly understood the way these great travelers live, until now. In this film, you’ll follow the European crane, one of the world's highest-flying birds on its epic journey south from the Arctic across Europe to the sun-drenched oak woodlands of Spain and Portugal. This is the amazing story of an intelligent bird, a born survivor, with an uncanny ability to adapt in an ever-changing world.Extinct in the UK for over 400 years, the crane's recent return to British shores is a symbol of hope for conservation.
