Record number of storks spending winter in Slovenia

Ljubljana, 11 January - White storks in Slovenia are increasingly opting out of migration in winter, Birdlife Slovenia (DOPPS), a Slovenian ornithological NGO, said on Wednesday. This winter ornithologists counted a record 11 storks that stayed in the country. DOPPS says that a lack of food rather than cold is normally the cause for migration.
