I think the storks were running out of space to place their nests...

Thank you Brandon for your comment!
The weight of the nest may be 30 to 600 kg, however, as they always return to the same nest, it can increase its size due to repairs and reach a weight of 2000 kg.

I have to say that is one impressive nest! Looks like it's in a precarious position, although I am more than certain it will be there to stay for quite awhile! I just wouldn't want to be around if it falls.

One of the coolest spottings I've seen so far!
