Mystery bird ~ Avon dam ~ South Brent

This bird was observed and photographed at the top end of the Avon dam, South Brent this afternoon by local resident John Hoare, I am thinking that it is a juvenile Black Stork.

Eds - yes Black Stork! Note ring on right leg: information welcome on origin of this. 

 

FROM THE FINDER THE RING NUMBER IS POSSIBLY Y0187
