Collared dove and white storks

This video from Britain says about itself:

Collared doves; on sunflower heart feeder. West Sussex, UK, November 2010.

This morning at the railway station. A collared dove sitting on top of the electronic board announcing train departures. Underneath, a jackdaw searched for food on the platform.

In the northern meadow of the “Baillon’s crake nature reserve”, two birds. Not Baillon’s crakes; they are far too small to see from a train. And they are in Africa now. I saw two white storks.

They should have been in Africa as well. However, they were still there. Because of the mild winter so far? Because these birds were born in a BirdLife in the Netherlands white stork captive breeding program?
