The blue area respresents the distribution of White Storks in Africa; and the green speck in the Western Cape represents the breeding range of the tiny but fascinating population that breeds in the southern hemisphere.
The big question in relation to the White Storks breeding in the Western Cape is "Where do the offspring go?"
