Black stork?

Possible black stork over Seskli island yesterday. I watched it for ten minutes or so. Typically it had caught a thermal over the island and rose to almost a dot in the sky. Much bigger than a heron, black on top with a white undercarriage.

The photo doesn't help, so I'll never know for sure, but it's in the right place going in the right direction!
