Traveling along the Black Sea migration route ('Via Pontica') many Storksdo not reach their summer nest which have been known to grow to over 2 m in diameter and about 3 m in depth. White Stork a symbol in Bulgarian folklore, to many Bulgarians the more nesting pairs in a village mean wealth and happiness. ©Clifford Norton/Alamy
