More on the N Devon White Stork

The following is from Shaun Barnes and Ken Ebsworthy...

We went to Yelland with JUST binoculars! And had the best views of the White Stork which John Turer has mentioned! It seemed to lift of from near the old Power station Jetty area, probably flushed by a dog! It flew so close to us and over our heads so elegantly, with just the odd graceful wing flap. It circled more and more gaining hight and being mobbed by noisy herring gulls and odd crow! It circled above Instow before coming back over heads and heading towards Braunton! It all lasted for about 15 minutes 11.15 - 11.30am.
