Godwit! The Incredible Journey of a Wader

Nature & Wildlife 1 x 96' or 3 x 45' 2022 4K

The black-tailed godwit is a symbol of the Netherlands – yet the iconic national bird seems to be rapidly disappearing from the Dutch country. The traditional Dutch image of the perky wader in the flowery meadows of our polders is increasingly difficult to find. How is that possible? And what does that say about the landscape? Following the species on its journey across the world to the Netherlands, this intimate and impressive documentary series and feature film show how the bird strives to survive in a continuously changing world.
