Carlos tells us: "No doubt the star was the flock of wood storks which were perfoming for us during the morning. Impressive! All these photos can not accurately reflect what it really was. I was driving my car and could see them flying over the reserve. They came in flying low, then at the viewpoint they performed all sort of exercises, always on the wing. Beautiful, indeed! It seems they were seen on Saturday afternoon, so I believe they must have spent the night at the reserve. At times there were two groups with more than 40 individuals each. Impossible to capture all of them together!"
