After the rain on Monday the male came to feed the last storklet left in the nest. The siblings have already started an independent life. The female left already a few weeks ago quietly heading for the winter quarters – such is the mode of life of all nesting birds of this species, which we have seen over the years in the web camera.

The young storks usually leave on the first days of August and move towards south individually (sometimes juveniles go together), in case someone should notice them.
