Wonderful shot. Wonder if the storks prefer roofs to trees.

This roof would not be a great spot with the whimsical observatory and the needle. The oldest Storknest in town is on a huge old house, the city hall, and there are nests in a modern steel antenna tower between the walled downtown and the wetlands. This is a nest by a new colony member only built this year, no idea if it is there to stay or was just a trial. Normally the stork apreciates a firm structure with a blunt open top, be it a chimney or smal flat roofed modern tower or a farm offering a wagon wheel on the roof ridge, swaying branches of old willows or beeches going back down again are not very likely nesting places, but I have seen worse constructions.
