Flight for Survival: The Migration of Birds

Synopsis
Shows what happens to birds when they migrate to and from Britain and other parts of Europe. Follows the migration of the Arctic tern, sanderlings and swallows and other European species and shows some of the hazards they face. The full treatment of the natural history of migration is supplemented by brief attention to research into migration and navigation with a slight attempt to explain the data.
