Europe still possesses a very rich heritage of bird life, and Wild Wonders photographers managed to shoot great images of 218 species, ranging from iconic raptors, such as the golden eagle and gyrfalcon, through a wide variety of wetland species such as pelicans, storks, flamingos and cranes, to the great seabird colonies of the Atlantic coast and the colourful passerines and grassland species of central and southern Europe, not forgetting the globally endangered great snipe.
