Black Stork - Red River/Hanoi

At 15h00 on Friday 26 October I spotted a juv. Black Stork soaring above this area here along the Red River, c.25 km north of Hanoi. I lost it but found it again one hour later on the sandbar, in the same area.
This guy was not searching for food and I assume that it intended to stay here for the night.
I  crawled to within about c.100 meters of it. Pfiuu, photographing flycatchers in an orchard is much more easy!..


And a very poor video, which  I publish here really as a record and nothing else :
