I think it is quite usual for the White Storks to be around at this time of the year, but they are usually found a few hundred metres to the south on the Marianhill Landfill Site. I have seen them there a few times, and I was there this morning. I didn’t bother to count them, (difficult to count against the matching black and white bits of plastic) but I would say a good hundred or so. Not exactly the same awesome sight as the Edgewood College grounds! There were at least as many YBK’s too, and a number of Woolly Necks – but that is all year round.
These are pictures I took almost exactly 3 years ago at Marianhill Landfill Site.
Try counting these birds!
Awesome in a rather different way!
