    How many adult/mature males have come back this Spring?

    Lovely close ups. I assume the sound is off as it was windy. Would be enhanced with the right music playing quietly in the background.

      Unfortunately at this point there is no sound, as the camera has no microphone. Much of this footage is also shot at a high zoom, so the camera is always a long distance away from the birds. We are looking into ways to capture the sounds of the birds on the Plain, so this is something we’ll keep website readers updated on.

    Magnificent achievement – congratulations and best wishes for further success. Here at Denmark’s largest lake, 30 minutes from CPH, we have recently welcomed beavers back home after centuries.
