Moselle storks stars of online 'reality TV' hit

Thousands of viewers from all over the world log on every day to webcam above birds' nest on rooftop high above busy street

Storks in the Moselle town of Sarallbe have become an internet sensation after authorities installed a webcam just above their nest.

The permanently running webcam receives up to 150,000 hits every day - with online visitors from Canada, the USA, Mexico and Japan all logging in to check on the progress of the two adults and their three young on a rooftop high above a busy street in the town.

Locals, too, appreciate the 'reality TV' story developing so close to home. One woman told broadcaster France 3 that she enjoys checking in on the baby storks.
