In the summer of 2020 white storks (Ciconia ciconia) hatched for the first time in the wild for more than 600 years in Britain. The adult pair successfully raised 3 chicks at the top of an oak tree on the Knepp Estate in West Sussex, where many have been reintroduced as part of a long-running 'rewilding' project. Deer, cows and pigs also roam the estate. More than 2,500 human visitors flocked to observe the chicks after COVID-19 restrictions were relaxed.
