STATUS
Summer visitor and migrant with some winter sightings (according to this bird’s phenology), suggesting that a few birds might be sedentary. 

ABUNDANCE
Common, c. 200 pairs.

HABITAT
Nests on church steeples and other buildings of towns and villages plus farmsteads. There are also some tree-nesting colonies (in riverside Poplar woods and Eucalyptus copses, Holm-Oak dehesas, etc).

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Takes to its nests in November and leaves them in July or August. In October there are hardly any storks remaining in the Sierra. 

DISTRIBUTION
There is a glaring difference between the eastern and western half of Sierra Morena. In Huelva and Seville the bird is abundant whereas it could be classed as rare in a large part of Córdoba and Jaén, where it is tricky to see outside a few favoured towns.
