Z veje, ki se razteza nad potokom, vodomec bliskovito strmoglavi v vodo. Že čez nekaj trenutkov spet sedi na njej, v kljunu pa ima ribico, ki se zdi za njegovo velikost mnogo prevelika. Ribji orel, v teh krajih izjemno redek gost, zbuja med pticami radovednost, pa tudi strah. A orla zanimajo le ribe ‒ že kmalu ena od njih konča svoje življenje v njegovih krempljih. Kragulj, ki si po dolgi zimi želi svežega zalogaja, se silovito požene proti mlakaricam, ki nič hudega sluteče plavajo ob obrežju.

Vse to se dogaja le lučaj od industrijskega mesta Velenje, na kraju, kjer pred dvema desetletjema življenja skoraj ni bilo več. Jezera v okolici Velenja so nastala kot posledica posedanja tal nad rovi premogovnika. Film je odličen prikaz, kako lahko človek nekoč uničeno industrijsko območje spremeni v prijazno okolje, kamor se vrne življenje.

 

Film is showing how birds returned to an environment once devastated by industry. The lakes around the northern Slovenian town of Velenje, placed in the Central Europe, are geographic centre of the film. They emerged as the land above the lignite mines subsided and the depressions were filled with water. The mines started operating at the end of the 19th century. In the mid 20th century a thermoelectric power plant was built that caused a severe pollution of the lake waters to the extent of the lakes not being fit for any kind of life. As a consequence many birds moved from these parts. After a long ecological restoration that started in the mid 1980s, life returned to the water. Gradually the birds returned as well, including some there were previously never observed in this area.
