After 604 Years the Stork Returns to the UK

It's exciting to see that after 604 years the white stork has returned to the UK! These beautiful birds fly from as far as South Africa. That's some serious mileage! A theory behind their decline points to over hunting.

Turns out storks like a crowd! Not only do they feel safe amongst their stork buddies, it's also a good insurance policy for finding another mate...just in case their partner bites the dust. Looks like their instincts have brought them home to the UK once again. It's a great celebration, for they have been gone from sight for such a very long time. And in this case, there's no place like home.
