It’s been 13 years since the first webcam to record the life of storks was installed in the village centre. Because of its succes we installed a second one, likewise in the village, in 2019.
Furthermore, should you ever find yourself in this area, coming in from the National Road 15, you may notice a stork nest almost on every electric power pole.
The White Stork, one of the most popular bird species, shows a tendency to live near us, humans. It certainly is beneficial for both parties!
The impressive nests are renewed year after year by both the male and the female. The storks feed on shallow wetlands and agricultural lands (pastures, grasslands, fallows) and their diet changes according to the season: rodents and insects (locusts, grasshoppers) in dry weather conditions, and aquatic animals (frogs, snakes) in rainy intervals. Generally, they raise 3 to 5 chicks, depending on the weather conditions and the available food resources.
Via our webcam, you will have direct access to the most important time of their life. We know you’re great fans. In 2017, we registered over 35,000 viewers. Thank you for your visit and we hope you’ll follow the storks this year, too!
