The Woolly-necked Stork (Afrikaans name, Wolnekooievaar) is a fairly common resident and an intra-African migrant.

We came upon a pair of woolly-necked storks in a dry river bed just before sunset in the Mala Mala Game Reserve.

They have become become quite uncommon so once again we were lucky to spot them.

They nest in a large tree, usually overlooking water.
