Special Birds: White Stork

The vast majority of the world's White Storks Ciconia ciconia breed in Eastern Europe. From The Baltic States to the Balkans they are familiar, and much loved, birds. They winter in Africa and return to their breeding sites, often the very same nest each year, about now (late March into April). This one photographed at Aggtelek, Hungary, by Gerard Gorman.
