March 25th, Stork Day!
The Stork Day (Gandrinės) has come to Lithuania. As our folks remember, March 25th is the day when people celebrate the return of their most devoted bird, White Stork. Not every year do White Storks manage to come back for this particular day – sometimes they celebrate this day in the territories south of Lithuania. This year, the first White Storks returned on Match 8th, so we can see them everywhere today.
