In our second episode we explore the lives of the white storks nesting at Knepp Wildland which have featured on Springwatch this month.
The white stork (Ciconia ciconia) is a large charismatic bird that is the focus of a project to re-establish a breeding population in the south-east of England. Charlie Burrell, Knepp landowner; Lucy Groves, White Stork project officer; and Kirsty Richardson, stork volunteer, join us in this episode to share their enthusiasm for the project whilst we get up close to these beautiful birds on the nest and also in their enclosure.
Enjoy the sound of the storks bill clattering and fly with us as we carry out a nest monitoring drone flight.
For more information about the project please visit the White Stork Project website or follow on Twitter @projectstork
And if you’d like to join in on a virtual white stork walk please go on our Knepp Wildland Safaris website to purchase your front row seats.
