    THE STORKS ARE HERE

    On Monday afternoon, I got my bike and had a stroll in the surroundings of Beuvron to enjoy this nice beginning of spring in the area.
    Between le Pays D’Auge and the plain of Caen there is a land of transition known as le Marshland of Dives. This humid zone is fairly preserved in an ecologic point of view since it is mainly a land dedicated to cattle breeding (open air) and “soft” agriculture, avoiding nitrate fertilizers. So that the aquatic wildlife is rich especially with batrachians
    Maybe (surely, even though it is not the only one reason) it explains why the white storks (ciconia ciconia) have taken up residence there.
    In the beginning of the 70’s only 8 couples still nested in France, mainly in East. Intensive agriculture, destructions of marshes, high-tension lines had made the population falling.
    Since 15 years, the process was inverted but this time for the benefit of western regions, Normandy being one of these. Three areas are concerned, the Cotentin (Carentan Regional Park), Seine Regional Park and Marshland of Dives which is not a park at all (nothing was done to attract the birds; it means that re- nestling here is perfectly “natural”)
    Here the population is increasing, about twenty couples in 1995, 59 in the last census in 2013. Moreover, according to the ringing, we note a settling process and nowadays we can see storks in wintertime even if it is not the common rule.
    So, in short, me, my bike and my binoculars were on the tiny roads around Hotot en Auge when I saw a nest of stork. One adult was perched but I caught a glimpse of the grey neck of a young (that means it was born two or three weeks ago). A bit later, the second adult (both male and female sit on and feed alternatively) arrived and regurgitated food for the chick.
    Unfortunately, I had only my little camera to take that so my photos are nothing special. Next time I will try to be well equipped.
    Anyway a nice Monday afternoon.









    In addition here is a TV report about storks in Seine Regional Park (if it works)

    Monitor lizard seen in Singapore River near Clark Quay:



    Obviously not afraid of people, more the other way around.

    Not as big as the "wee beast" that used to be a resident near our house. This one was something like 90 cm head to tip of tail only.

    Poor little creature. I wonder how long it survived? It looks agile enough within its limits, but what limits!
