White Stork

White Stork

At the end of the summer, storks form groups and leave Europe on an arduous, 6,000km journey,

making their way to Africa within a few weeks. Young storks stay in Africa for 2 years before migrating every year.

Did you know? Storks reuse and improve their nest year on year. They can weigh over 500kg and can have a diameter of over 2m!
