Germany is one of the most industrialised European countries, with a population of more than 80 million people. However, it still retains a wide variety of excellent wildlife habitats, including forests, wetlands, coastal marshes, heathland and peat bogs. Laszlo Novak (Hungary) visited the Wattenmeer or Waddensee National Park on the North Sea coast, Europe's largest national park and one of the most productive habitats on Earth, with spectacular flocks of wildfowl and waders.
German photographer Dieter Damschen spent time in the Elbe Biosphere Reserve in Lower Saxony, home to large numbers of breeding waterbirds, including black storks, egrets and white-tailed sea eagles. Florian Moellers (Germany) focussed on the autumn crane flocks migrating through Brandenburg.
