I’d like to present my neighbor, a real high flyer. Actually she’s a stork and her nest is in the bell tower of the Santa Cruz la Real Convent, which houses the IE University campus. I love to watch her from my office window as she glides silently over Segovia’s old city walls. She comes back from Africa with her partner every January to mate. I saw her a few days before the San Blas feast day, which means that she arrived at little earlier than usual. Some mornings when I get to the university campus and it’s snowing or raining heavily and freezing cold, I can’t stop looking at her nest in awe of these majestic migratory birds, which are so much a part of the scenery here. It’s estimated that there are over 30,000 couples, one of which lives right above my head.
