What Stalks Our Meadow?

The above title is an attempt of translating a German childrens’ song:

Something's wading in our meadows,
in the marshes stalking.
It's wearing a frock in black and white,
and also bright red stockings. 
Catching frogs with snap-snap-snap. 
Clapping happily clap-clap-clap. 
Can you guess 
about whom I am talking? 

You think it's the chattering stork, 
in the marshes stalking.
Wearing a frock in black and white,
and also bright red stockings.
Catching frogs with snap-snap-snap. 
Clapping happily clap-clap-clap. 
No, it’s not. It’s Mrs Stork, 
about whom I am talking.
