Life Experience

First Stork Chicks Hatch in UK After 600 Years

Storks last nested in the UK in Edinburgh in 1416 until this year! Now (summer 2020) they can be seen on the Knepp Estate in West Sussex a few miles south of Horsham, near the village of Dial Post on the A24.

The huge nest was built near the top of a large oak tree. Eggs hatched in May and the large chicks could easily be seen from the ground by the hundreds of visitors that arrived to see them.

My snaps were taken on 2nd July.
