White Stork migration across Bosphorus

We saw an estimated 1000 -1500 White Storks migrating across the Bosphorus in 2 two hour sessions. Huge spirals of storks could be seen riding up on the thermals on the other side of the Bosphorus and when they reached the required height they swept across the channel and many flew up quite close to us before heading off to the North. It was a marvellous site.
