Hi !
I will like to present you some my photos of White Storks in Greece. That is some wich I take a last year in North part of Greece in Thrace, near Evros Delta. The first photo is old stork the another is a young from lat year. On the second very small yet afteryou can see one from same nest, when he try the wings -about one moth before he will fly. The anothers is when the birds was almost ready to fly.

My best regards :biggrin:

The only Island where is now some few storks is Lesbos (Mitilini) - is near Turkish border (2 "steps"). The White Storks don't fly well up on the see, so for this reason you they are nit in Islands.
Most of the Greek storks is in North Greece (Thrace and Macedonia). In all Greece they are about 2000 pairs all.

So, you don't have nothing else to do - you must to come to North Greece :biggrin:
From Thessaloniki, Kavala, Xanthi, Alexandroupolis, Didimoticho, Orestiada - you will see a lot of storks :biggrin:
