Part I: Frozen Peaks
Part II: Rivers and Plains

Austria’s love affair with water has given her unique and amazing landscapes, carved out by Alpine glaciers, ancient seas and mighty rivers, home to iconic animals like eagles, wild boar, ibex, lynx and deer. Frozen or flowing, water has astonishing power. Glaciers gouge and scrape mountains into bizarre forms over millions – or just thousands – of years. Receding glaciers scoop out and fi ll lakes, but even these finally dry out, letting the forests take over. Rivers and waterfalls slice through mountains, dragging millions of tons of gravel to the lowlands and spreading new habitats: nesting for little ringed plover, and beds for airborne sycamore seeds to take root, binding the new land. Merganser ducks nest in abandoned woodpecker holes high in riverside trees. After a dozen siblings have hatched, the tiny ducklings leap after their mother, falling up to ten metres to the water below. Straight away theymcan swim. But learning to fish is more of a trial – with plenty of error! In Austria‘s world-famous bird sanctuary at Lake Neusiedl, the cuckoo conceals its intentions well. Hiding in the reeds, it tricks many birds – but not all – into raising its demanding, murderous o¬ spring. Austria – Created by Water combines overwhelming spectacle with miniature high drama, portraying a country where water in all its forms brings beauty – and life.
