    The shots list twice states that the location is Hungary, (and indeed this area was once part of Hungary). However the location is an unnamed village in Burgenland, (mentioned by the commentator at 00:36), and since 1921 this are has been a province of Austria.

    The same village is used in an earlier Pathe story about storks, in clip 1136.01.
