Black stork       Must-toonekurg          Ciconia nigra

 

On Thursday (July 27) the first young black stork made its first proper flight out from the nest a few minutes past 1 o’clock.

Nest life was 65 days and during the already 10 years of black stork web camera history these events come largely at the same time.

Usually the young birds return to the nest in the evening for a couple of weeks. The one who left the nest today had not returned when darkness fell. Let us keep our fingers crossed for our favourites, an exciting time starts in their lives but also full of dangers
