More about White Storks.


Poland is the place to see and photograph white storks in Europe. According to the most recent International Census of White Storks some 52,500 pairs breed in Poland each year. White Storks breed in open farmland areas with access to marshy wetlands, such as the area around the River Warta in the west of Poland. They build a stick nest in trees, on buildings, or special platforms - often nesting fairly close to human habitation. The White Stork feeds mainly on frogs and large insects, but also young birds, lizards and rodents. The white Stork is almost silent except for the noisy mutual bill-clattering when adults meet at the nest.


A selection of White Stork photographs will be online soon. If you would like us to add a picture to the online bird photography gallery contact us and we will be happy to do so. Please include the following information: bird; locality; name of photographer; and date taken.
