Pete's Pond Cam Chat - Saturday 12 January 2008
Welcome Fani.....it is very quiet at PP tonight. Only the bugs flying around over the water. Staying in one position but much better than the bush it was stuck on last night.
and appreciate it very much Calista
Haha, thanks Marblehead. Fani, Debby and Lady's Mom usually post quite a few pics too. I posted for Fani as I knew she wasn't on when that stork showed up at daybreak.
Calista, your photographs are beautiful! If National Geographic were smart, they would hire you. In the meantime, I am going to have to this PP thread more often to view them. Thanks.
You are very welcome Fani, I knew you would like it when you have a stork as your avi. What very interesting info you told me about the stork, thank you for that.
Wow !!! This is even better ...Thank you Calista ..This is the White Stork -Ciconia ciconia ...my avatar LOL...In spring they will start they jurney to the north and around the middle of March we will see them here in Europe ...This stork maybe is the next door neighbour of Ursula or mine ...LOL White storks breed beside the humans for centuries now ....into the towns...on the churches or the poles... All the population of White storks from the East Europe and partly that of the Central ..migrate to the South Africa ...via Vosporus ....
Yes it is a stork. I don't know birds all that well ther than the cattle egrets.
And I should have paid closer attention to Fani's post, it doesn't pay to multi task when posting!
Isn't it a stork? We have them here in Central Europe during summer. In winter they fly south to AFRICA.
Sorry for posting twice! Can't delete.
Fani, here is a picture of the crane by himself that I snapped last night.
Edited....Fani, I meant stork when I posted it was a crane....big mistake huh?
