A documentary about the most spectacular spring in the last fourty years. Five months of filming in the Iberian Peninsula, great forests, lakes, plains, saltworks, the awakening of the flora and especially of the fauna. We witness unique moments like the mating of the viperine water snake and the long journey into maturity of the natterjack toad.
We contemplate the courtship of the bee eaters, the frolic of the flamingos or the cheerful movements of the little owls, accompanied by a cohort of small birds that invade Spain and Portugal. «Alravanes», lesser spotted woodpeckers, herons, great crested grebes, storks and vultures meet at a spectacle in which these animals are the privileged protagonists. (Second most watched programme of the day in its premiere at TVE (Spain). It attracted an average of 629.000 viewers, a 5.8% share. Average of the channel the same day 3,3%)
