Russia: Bird's-eye view! CCTV captures rare stork's nest as fire sweeps through Amur regionMay 12, 2019 at 18:35 (GMT) · Published
A nest of a rare stork avoided impending doom as fire spread through woodlands in Russia's south eastern Amur region, as footage captured on April 28 and released on Wednesday shows.
The CCTV camera was reportedly placed by biologists observing the life and population of the white stork, which is listed in Russia's 'Red Book' which lists endangered plant and animal species.
More than 61,000 hectares of forests are estimated to be burning across Russia, including seven forest fires in the Amur region.
