A roof with some resident Storks, seen in Romania….that nest looks a serious creation:

  1. oh and you have captured the youngsters in it. We never get to see the young in nests in Portugal as we are always in England at this time of year. So wonderful to see. A great roof square.

  2. That’s a favourite you have picked for the challenge, Sue. What a lovely image of the Stork and the little ones. 😍
    They do have a fascinating nest. Do you know, some stork species use the same nest over multiple breeding seasons, adding new sticks and pieces of turf to the nest after they return from their annual migration. Over time, nests have been known to expand to a cosy nine feet deep and six feet wide, and bulk up to about 500 pounds. In the Croatian village of Cigoc, also known as the first European Stork Village, some nests perched on roofs have been home to generations of hatchlings for over one hundred years. Amazing, isn’t it! 🙂

  3. Great stork family shot, Sue. They really know how to build a nest. Given some training, I reckon they could become skilled thatchers! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Great nest and lovely to see the babies too!

  5. Wonderful capture, love the babies 🙂

    I thought Storks only brought other babies – a great zoom Sue (unless you were on the roof) and I gave a nod to you too in my post – thank you!

      I wasn’t on a roof, Laura! Yikes, not with my balance and lack of agility these days!! This was taken over a decade ago with my Nikon D70, and my first zoom lens with image stabilisation…70-200 VR, if I remember correctly….would have to check the exif data….

      Oh, and I checked out your post – thanks for the mention!

    oops – wrong link – it’s on my photo blog of course….

  8. A lovely photo of a stork nests with a new family being raised, Sue!

  9. I’m enjoying a large robin’s nest in the tree outside my office window
    .Oh the joys of nature.

  10. I long to stop for a stork’s nest – and the villages they nest in – but I’m always in someone else’s car. Thank you for vicarious pleasure.
