Oh, he is still standing there. It looks really like good-bye but we will see. It is sad but only little because all is going in the way as it should be :bow: .
In any case we have to wish to these amazing storks Kaupo and Gaja and to their lovely kids good luck and happy journey! And I will hope that this beautiful nest will be repairable for the next season :2thumbsup: .

Liz :hi: , it was wonderful season with you and "your storks" and as well as your documenting was wonderful. Thank you very much! For me it was like a miracle that all four storklets survived, without accidents, without accidental fall on such a small place and without anything bad. Kaupo and Gaja were so excellent providers!
