Where have all the songbirds gone?
In the North Sea, about 70 kilometres from the German coastline, lies Heligoland. The small Island spans a mere 1.7 km in diameter, with only 1200 inhabitants. Because of the island's remote location, the choice to leave it behind is never taken lightly.
The island was the first place on earth to be the focus of systematic studies on bird migration and serves as a breeding ground of close to 400 bird species. The combination between the island's location and weather conditions causes significant variations in local bird population throughout the year.
The project explores the contrasts and similarities between the migratory people and birds of Heligoland, and focuses on the inevitable choices every islander comes to face.
