So.....
Rottenbach has 3 sizeable chicks but no sign of other eggs.
Lindheim has 3 wee chicks and 1 egg .
Hochstadt has 2 wee chicks and 1 egg.

I know it's nature but it's a wee bit sad when some eggs/chicks don't make it. More room for the rest to thrive I suppose!

I was watching one of them this morning - it was on its own and trying to pluck up courage to take off! Its sibling was flying but he/she was still dithering

Is it acceptable to refer to them as "chicks" or "morning birds". Should we not just refer to them as "our feathered friends"?

I thought the storks migrated to warm climates in winter, but just checking the webcams, the poor things are standing there on their nest in snow

It's a wee shame...
I remember seeing them in their snow covered nests last year. It just seems so open to the elements but I suppose it's all nature.
