I must admit I am more of a fan of the large wading birds then the smaller ones, but that’s probably more about my ability to identify than anything else! Although having said that Spoonbills are just wonderful to watch feeding, and seeing a Stork on its nest always makes me smile.
Whilst Storks may not yet be breeding in the UK, Spoonbills are. A colony has formed in Norfolk.
But do know we are planning our next trip, fly out in just a couple of days. A chance to see some of the breeding birds of the Algarve.
It is of course though on the nests where I really love watching them.
Capturing birds in flight is always a challenge, but was delighted to capture this Stork despite the background.
