    • Yes, I understand, Donna. They can eat anything that moves. I saw one GBH eat a fish, whole! The fish was a big as his neck. After he swallowed it you were able to see the shape of the bird for a long while. Gross! Thank you, my friend. 🙂

  1. These storks are being successfully reintroduced in U.K. The first chicks have hatched. They have always been rare vagrants, only c20 a year. Last breeding record in U.K.? 1416, on a cathedral roof!
