A story of love

Storks in Quinta da Torre. Alpiarça, Portugal

.................................................................................................................................

Storks migration sometimes doesn't happen for a few birds of this kind. Portugal is a sunny country and some storks don't leave and spend the winter here specially if one of a couple cannot leave on time. . It is the story of these two. The female stork had a wing hurt last september and she couldn't go to a long flight trip. The companion didn't went eighther to be with her. So both didn't leave and that's why they look so thin and in bad shape. They live on the top of the reservatory of water of Quinta da Torre at Alpiarça.
