The beauty of Polish wildlife, especially the life of wild birds in north-east Poland is the main subject of this documentary. It consists of thrilling, moving and beautiful scenes which do not need any external comments. Viewers can watch white-tailed eagles attacking a flock of cormorants, mating dance of black grouses and cranes, fights of ravens and buzzards for carrion. Beautiful shots also demonstrate how weather conditions such as wind, rain and thunderstorm influence wildlife. The scenes have been recorded and selected with great care. It took three years to gather the necessary material for the documentary and the final result is definitely worth that effort.
