Regarding White Stork increase in Portugal it should also be mentioned that power line and posts management has been fundamental. Additionally, the super abundant American Crayfish are a mainstay for them in ricefields here. A large part of the breeding population breeds in grassland habitats where they feed on large insects etc. Wintering birds in the Algarve are most numerous in the Silves wider area because of the big regional tip there but also because of the nearby ricefields.
