Two real wild Storks!

I could finally catch today a nest housing a couple of young storks, in Ottoland, a small village in a wide farmers' countryside 50kms away from the Hague. A local person told us this couple had been coming on top of this church every year; the nest is growing bigger and bigger, and will soon need some (artificial) consolidation. You can see on the photo below how big it is now.

For those who are not familiar with my previous posts on storks, this is the symbol of the Hague, and I have been trying to catch a sight of them for months, with no success so far in the city!

Well, this time you caught a great looking one (the church is very pretty, btw).

I absolutely love stork nests! Your blog has taught me a lot about those cool birds.

I hope you'll keep photographing this nest over the next few years. It would be interesting to see if they keep enlarging it. :)

Wow, that is awesome! That is a huge nest, but then again, storks are pretty big birds! Very neat picture!

I believe you will find wild storks in The Hague, right across the Central Station. The wild storkes are lured by other storkes, held in a cage nearby.

Love the storks. That nest really is huge!

Lezard said...

Thanks Hees for the tip!. I keep looking up around the city!

This nest is indeed very huge, and with the common Beaufort 4-5 winds in the area, I still wonder how it is still standing very straight!

This is an awesome picture! Can you tell me why the many pictures I see of storks in Den Haag have an eel in its mouth? I just viewed a series of pictures in flickr and they all look the same. They are drawings, sculptures, etc. and I understand the stork is a symbol for the city but the eel reference I can't find. Thanks much, Pamela S.
