Great Bustards, which have been reintroduced to the UK thanks to the Great Bustards Group project in Wiltshire, have been sharing their elaborate courtship display with the Springwatch cameras.

The birds were hunted out of existence in Great Britain in the 1840s, but have been successfully reintroduced to the UK since 2003.

Springwatch 2010 can be viewed Monday to Thursday at 8pm on BBC Two until 17 June.
