Re: The Storks Are Returning Already

I thought this thread was going to be about Swiss women giving birth---not the actual stork!

I was expecting this to be some sort of pregnancy announcement

It's a bit early for them too. We've only just got into those long winter nights that result in those stork deliveries you know.

Re: The Storks Are Returning Already

Storks are soooo much yesterday, Flamingos (german link) are the new trend

At least on the Untersee, the western part of the Lake of Constance (Bodensee). Unfortunately, if they stay their feathers will turn white-ish sooner or later.

Re: The Storks Are Returning Already

Been out to Altreu near Solothurn today and lots of baby storks in the nests there. Two, three and a couple of nests even had four babies in them. Looks like they've done well this year.

Re: The Storks Are Returning Already

They must now be on their way back to somewhere warmer. These were at the end of my street in Meyrin this morning.

Re: The Storks Are Returning Already

Think they're getting ready to Gordon. We went to Altreu last weekend (end of August) and there were still some on the nests there. It's difficult to tell exactly as they could also have just been off feeding in the fields of course so not sure whether they've now departed for the winter or are still here.

Great pics btw, thanks for posting them.

I've never seen them here before so I assume that they're just resting on their way south. They are quite close to the end of the GVA runway and will have to cross the flight path as they head south. I hope they take care!

They could well be heading south in that case Gordon. With the weather on the turn I expect their instincts are telling them it's time to start their long journeys.
