Flying Over Natura 2000

“Flying Over Natura 2000” project in 2006 created a series of TV clips aimed at discovering the Natura 2000 network via the migrations of black storks. During their long journey, selected storks were fitted with radio transmitter so that they could send a “postcard”, or small TV clip, to television viewers. These clips showcase some of the Natura 2000 sites they have flown over.
