Saddle-billed stork drama

One forgets so easily that life in the wild is dangerous rather than idyllic. A young saddle-billed stork, not yet fledged, must have fallen out of the nest. Both parents were feeding it - you can see one of them dropping a fish in front of the chick, which was clearly ravenous - but the chances that it would survive through the night were slender, unless it retreated into the water, far enough to be safe from predators.
