Trailer for Born to fly

Duration: 2 minutes
Released: 2011

Cranes are among the most ancient of birds and undertake great migrations every year. We’ve never truly understood the way these amazing travellers live – until now.

Watch this trailer for our latest film, which follows the European crane – one of the world’s highest-flying birds – on its epic journey south. The film follows the crane as it travels from the Arctic, across Europe to the sun-drenched oak woodlands of Spain and Portugal.

This is the incredible story of an intelligent bird, a born survivor, with an uncanny ability to adapt to 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 all concerned about the natural world.
