Abstract: In 2023, the highest known age of a Black Stork was 22 years and two months. The author summarized five published and four new data on individuals (all ringed as pulli) which reached from 18 years and 3 months to 22 years and min. 2 months of life. Eight of them had besides Alu rings also readable colour plastic rings. The new knowledge is that the 22-year-old male was raising its chicks. 

Key words: ageing, Black Stork, bird aluminium and colour ringing, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary
