White Stork

Ciconia ciconia

There are 19 species of stork including the white, black and marabou. They are closely related to herons, ibises and egrets.



Size: Height: around 1m
Weight: 2.5 - 4.4kg



The white stork is a migratory bird mainly found in marshy grasslands. They can even be seen in towns, nesting on roofs.



The white stork’s diet includes frogs, locusts and mammals. Wherever a locust swarm occurs there will be a large number of storks feasting on the easy meal!



The nest can be up to 2m (6ft) across, and consists of a platform of sticks, paper and other materials. Around 6 Eggs hatch in 30-37 days.



The white stork is classed as least concern, but they are still threatened by habitat alteration, hunting, eating poisoned bait and collisions with overhead power lines while migrating.
