Stork migration route through France.

Can anyone recommend where to find information about the stork migration route through France? I'm new to birding and a bit overwhelmed by the MASS of information available both in English AND French.
I was driving near the river Saone early this morning and spotted what I think was a white stork in one of the fields nearby but of course I only had pathetic binoculars with me and a mobile phone camera-I know, I know-told you I was new to birding! (There was also about a dozen white jobbies (egrets?) which landed in the same field alongside two ------ herons and a ------ buzzard flew over the field as well, but I wasn't going to mention those in my embarrassment at nipping out not fully 'dressed' so to speak!) But in my defence, I did identify a nice little stonechat sitting on the fence...
Anyway, I would be grateful if anybody could point me in the right direction of finding out if the stork was an usual sighting at this time of the year.
Merci beaucoup.

Have a look here :

Seems like there is a reasonable number of breeding birds in your region so probably not unusual.
