Latin name - Ciconia ciconia

In many parts of Europe the White stork is an unmissable bird, attending to its huge nests on the rooftops and telegraph poles of numerous towns and villages. It is unmistakable, with a white body, mostly black wings, red legs and a long red bill.

Breeds in towns and villages on the tops of roofs and poles or, in colonies, in trees in open parkland. Feeds mostly in fields and meadows.

The bill-clattering is often part of a greeting ceremony between adults at the nest where one or both birds may throw their heads backwards until the bill is upside-down and almost touching their backs. Bill-clattering is sometimes performed unforgettably by large flocks of migrant birds especially when they are about to tumble out of the sky in search of a roosting site.

Most birds migrate to tropical Africa (with some to Iran or the Indian sub-continent). Main departures are during mid-August to September, during which time huge numbers pass over the Bosphorus (up to 200,000 in a season) and Straits of Gibraltar (up to 40 000 a season).
