The bird in your photo (Courier, Picture of the Day, Wednesday May 2), is a white stork.
It could be one of our very rare visitors lost en-route to it’s breeding grounds in the Mediterranean after leaving Africa.
They don’t breed in the UK however. But more than likely, it’s an escapee from a zoo or someone’s bird collection somewhere.
It could be a juvenile going by the darkness of the beak but it’s hard to tell from the photograph.
A very beautiful bird though, regardless of where it may have come from!
