Storks on telegraph poles – now THAT is simply surprising

Stork Driving in Transylvania this was enough for me to ask to stop the car. Storks on their nests all the way down the high street of a village.  Storks are bigger than herons – it was remarkable to see them sitting so calmly above the houses largely ignored and ignoring everything below them. 

It reminded me of the current campaign running on the London Underground crosstrack posters to encourage people to visit London. Which features the line Simply surprising. With images which simply aren’t. Mountains seaside there’s nothing surprising about them. But this? This was surprising. And not a breath of it in the tourist brochures because here storks are so part of the landscape no one thinks to make a feature of them. Apparently they get bears rummaging through the dustbins as well…
