The little storks raised in the stork nest of Magyarfenes/Vlaha are spreading their wings. In the last two years the first flying happened on the 14th and 16th of July, three years ago we recorded the first leaving of the nest o the 27th of July. The nestlings have been training for the last week, they are alternately preparing for the flying. They are moing their wings rising to about a metre high and they drop back down. The parents repeatedly call them with loud clattering from the neighboring electricity pylons and rooftops. The little ones are almost the size of their parents. The adult storks are bringing food to the nest more and more often and they yark it in the middle of the nest. The little ones stand in a circle and they fight for every bite. The colour of their beak has also turned from black to red. Most probably they are spending their last days, weeks in the nest. When they will fly they will learn to feed on their own and nothing will attract them back to the parental nest anymore.
