White Stork Webcam - Spring 2017 Roundup
As a special treat, we also provided you with footage of a White Stork nest. Storks breed on continental Europe, before heading south to Africa or Asia for the winter. These majestic birds can stand a metre tall.
White Storks regularly build their nests on top of buildings and they will normally lay around four eggs in the spring. The chicks will spend the best part of three months in the nest, before striking out on their own.
The Storks had a slightly rough start this year losing three of their five chicks due to poor weather conditions but the two chicks that did survive grew up to be healthy and strong and provided us with a great insight into the life of a Stork chick.
We hope that you enjoyed watching our webcams, the feeds for which were kindly provided by the Beleef de Lente Project, courtesy of Vogelbescherming Nederland. You can watch all the videos on our YouTube channel.
