We have had a pair of storks nest and rear a chick on neighbouring chateaux every year as far as I can remember. But this year only one lone bird hung about for a month and now seems to have disappeared.
We thought we saw a few storks arriving some weeks ago, but we probably mistook Kranes for them.
Our village Storks haven't been around for 3 years there seem to be quite a few abandoned nests in this area.
Today we have had a lovely surprise, after being here for 13 years, for the first time we saw 6 thrushes in the back garden all morning, they seem to be finding lots to eat, we have also seen a pair of blackbirds for the first time, two birds that were very common in England. I shall be listening out for their song later.
We learn something new every day.
