White storks’ return


This is a video of a white stork nest in Ankeveen, the Netherlands.

Leiden – 26 February 2010

Though it is not spring yet, the white storks have returned to their nest in the Leidsche Hout park. They do have some respect for the [fallow] deer whose grounds they share. At the fodder, provided by humans, they wait patiently till the deer have finished eating.

White storks being carnivorous, they probably don’t eat the fodder itself, but search for insects etc. between the greens.
