How to build a white stork nest!
Less of a nest, more of a city!
The collapse of the construction industry
Sadly, in the UK, white storks were hunted to extinction around 600 years ago. Their loss was bad news for so many of their co-habitants. It seems certain that if there were white stork nests in the UK today, then there would be more wildlife in general! How can we solve this problem? One way in which we can contribute is by making our own stork nests and building homes for our native wildlife!
In this tutorial we will show you how!
Storks bringing babies
Thankfully there is now renewed hope for the return of white storks to the UK, with a reintroduction programme currently underway at Knepp Estate in West Sussex. Breeding has already been attempted and free flying birds are once again being seen in the area! Let’s hope this signals the return of this wonderful ecosystem engineer!
