White storks


White stork chicks have hatched in the UK for the first time in over 600 years. Over all that time, a legacy of these large, white, migratory birds has persisted. Eva Higginbotham spoke to conservation biologist Alexander Lees from Manchester Metropolitan University about the new arrivals, monogamous dating for storks, and the history of white storks in Europe...

For more on the historic hatching, listen to our interview with Lucy Groves from the White Stork Project.
