Black Stork - Alaw Estuary, Anglesey, Gwynnyd - 1st Aug 2007

The journey down to Anglesey was marred by a hour spent in gridlocked traffic close to the Menai Bridge. Upon arrival at the site at c19:00hrs, we discovered the bird had been flushed from a nearby creek by a photographer minutes before. However, it was still a quality bird despite the distance and the unexpected onset of poor weather. This was only my 2nd Black Stork, the previous being at Leighton Moss way back in 1989!
