A white stork that escaped from a wildlife park in the West Midlands remains uncaptured despite being spotted in Burnham-On-Sea last weekend.

The bird, which is named Daisy and is fitted with an electronic tracker, flew away from Wild Zoological Park in Stourbridge earlier in November.

It has since been seen in Staffordshire, Wiltshire and most recently on Burnham-On-Sea Tourist Information Centre, as we reported here.

Zoo director Zac Hollinshead said: “Her three siblings are missing her. We’re desperate to get her back.”

He said the “free flying stork” was taking part in a bird show at the zoo when it took off.

“She’s a trained bird but we were flying on a windy day and she just got up too high and got lost,” he said.

“She keeps showing up. We’ve had a few sightings of her and she has a radio tracker on her tail but she’s too far away for us to track her, and so we need some new sightings.”

Mr Hollinshead said the tracker only works when the bird is in sight. “Her three other siblings are all looking a bit sorry for themselves,” he added.

“We’re flying the other three but it’s not the same and we’d like to get her back.”
