Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), Island of Vilm, International Academy for Nature Conservation, Germany

Year: 2014
From collection: World Forest Ecosystems
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The chaffinch is one of the most common birds in the natural beech forest of the island of Vilm, where the International Academy for Nature Conservation (INA) of the German Federal Agency of Nature Conservation is based. The Isle of Vilm's great natural diversity is without parallel in the entire southern Baltic region. Not only does Vilm have nearly all types of coasts found in the southern Baltic, its coastlines are linked by never-ending processes of erosion and land formation. Vilm's flora and fauna have developed within an almost pristine wilderness; only very few other places in Germany remain as untouched as Vilm. Vilm's forests of ancient oak and magnificent beech are among the most impressive in all northern Germany.
