Black Stork 6th May

I also saw a Black Stork on the 6th May near Marshwood, Dorset.  Seen from bedroom window at eye height the bird was drifting down looking like it would land, passed the house and turned and landed in the field opposite. Went out to locate it, only to find the horses were being called in and it had been disturbed, but I spotted flying from the coppice along the stream and over county border in to Devon, last seen heading over Hawkchurch 6.45 pm.
