White Stork at Ferry Meadows CP
I switched my phone on this morning and was greeted by a message from Mike Weedon that was left on Sunday morning, informing me that a White Stork had been seen at Ferry Meadows. Hysteria started to set in as I have never seen a wild White Stork in the U.K. and was feeling gripped at potentially missing out on this bird. However, it was revealed that the bird in question was an escapee from the local exotic pet refuge in Deeping St.James, so hysteria subsided. I managed to pay a visit to the site in question in between jobs this morning where the bird (named Klio apparently) was still present on Horse meadow, showing and feeding well, flying a few times, but always returning to the same field.
I will have to wait for my 'wild' bird.
