They are probably the ugliest birds in Africa – if not the world. Marabou Storks.
They are common in Mwanza -digging through the rubbish tips. They also hang around Bismarck Rocks, sitting in the trees.
We saw them too in their more natural habitat, in the Serengeti.
Generally here by waterholes or gathering in trees near to a kill, waiting their turn.
As ugly as they are on the ground they are graceful in the air, whirling and soaring in the thermals in the clear blue skies.
