Colin Stafford-Johnson concludes his exploration at the source of the mighty river, where he observes migrant whooper swans, great crested grebes, cormorants and an array of starlings gathering at dusk. The cameras go underwater to follow the mating antics of freshwater crayfish, male suitors fighting over females and protective mothers with their delicate babies. Slow-motion footage also highlights the acrobatics of a red squirrel.
