THE STORKS OF THE LUANGWA
The power of togetherness
The yellow billed storks are an African species of, usually, solitary birds. However, once a year, towards the end of the rainy season, they congregate along the banks of the Luangwa, Zambia. They’ve chosen this place because it lies at the heart of a network of lagoons that are teeming with fish.
They are sharing this space with vultures, lions, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, an awesome group of hippos but also lazy marabous wandering under their nests to catch the fish falling through the holes.
Unfortunately, under the surface, there are also crocodiles on the prowl.
