Storks of Chellah

Storks of Chellah

Chellah was built ontop of the old Roman city of Sala Colonia in the 14th centuary. the defensive walls still stand today. A colony of storks has taken over the Roman ruins which are crumbling and in decay. This was an unexpected and fascinating sight for us Aussies as the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) is a rare vagrant in Australia and to see them at close range like this and so many of them was wonderful.
