The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Over the past few months I’ve posted the story of a stork nest in my area.
The white stork managed to successful hatch and rear three statuesque chicks.
And now it’s fledging time.
On Friday afternoon there were only two in the nest. Eventually we found the third on a nearby building.
But soon he made it to ground level. Unfortunately the dieren ambulance picked him up after concern from local residents and they treated him for dehydration.
He’s due to be returned to the field after the weekend.
The fledglings will stay fairly close and may return to the nest for a few days until they are strong enough to venture further afield.
