Storks??

I saw large white birds flying in the distance on March 1st.

Now, they might have been herons, but they did look remarkably like storks to me.

Seeing storks is one of the things I like about living in Poland. We're right on their flight path in Poland - and I have a marsh just down the road.

Re: Storks??

I haven't seen any this year, yet. Will look out this week.

Re: Storks??

The white storks are fiendishly camouflaged in the snow.

Re: Storks??

We saw our first storks yesterday. Two in a village just north of Wroclaw.

Re: Storks??

the cranes are back ...

the ones with the loud, trumpeting calls ... the ones that wake up at day-break, full of the joys of life ...

Re: Storks??

Speaking of cranes. Have you ever tried to get a photo of them. Extremely difficult. Very timid.

Re: Storks??

no - i only had my phone with me and they (x4) were about 20m away on a ploughed field. no chance of them standing out as they were black/grey.
bl88dy big things, though - would intimidate a stork any day

Re: Storks??

20m is pretty close. The cranes I've seen have always been in the far distance. Nice birds.

Re: Storks??

must admit i've grown to dislike their trumpeting calls ... especially the joyously loud version outside my window at 4am in the morning around may/june time.

Blue skies and sunshine here

Spring is here.

go find us ... read it and weep ...

(the Obwodnica was closed for a while this morning - that's how bad it was)

Re: Storks??

ain't much better in England - and my brother is going to Whitby for the weekend. Brrr-rr. Even Dracula's reported to have been seen getting back in his coffin to keep warm!

(The ship he was being transported in was wrecked just outside Whitby)
