I think the reason that there aren't many photos on the net of Black Storks foraging is two-fold;

1. They are extremely wary and difficult to get anywhere near while feeding, especially in the breeding season. In fact I personally would avoid approaching, scope views are a bonus. Wintering birds in Coto Doņana, on the other hand, can be quite approachable.

2. Black Storks tend to feed in shallows in remote river valleys. often with difficult access and away from main roads - sticking well away from human activity.
