Wetlands of La Mancha

White Stork and a Sunny Plain.
In certain fields in the region of La Mancha (Spain), characteristic for its Mediterranean olives trees, some years, during late winter and early spring, they get a lot of heavy rain that left the plains flooded for a short time. It is then when they come to the area a large number of birds attracted by the food provided by the new habitat (herons, egrets, storks, ducks and more) plus, the white storks year-round residents, are delighted with these new conditions, because they are in breeding season.
