Rare injured black stork discovered at the fish pond

A local resident found a young black stork in Sarlhusen that had become entangled in a fish pond net. The animal will now be raised at the breeding station in Klein Offenseth-Sparrieshoop.

The six-month-old young stork was lucky in his misfortune. Marlies Castillo from Sarlhusen (Steinburg district) found the animal in good time. He was caught in the net for probably just one night. The resident was able to free him with a pair of scissors. "I rode it home on my bike in a big bag," she says. From there he came to the wildlife station in Klein Offenseth-Sparrieshoop (Pinneberg district). "We were very happy that he wasn't seriously injured," says manager Christian Erdmann. Only the skin on the wings had been slightly chafed on the net. It has healed well now. But the problem: At 2.3 kilograms, it is still too light and needs to gain weight.

Libor Shejna:

Our young black storks🐧🐧
This year, our handicapped black storks hatched two chicks, a boy and a girl. Last year she was four and flew away without "backpacks", only with rings. We wanted to release them this year as well, but our friend and main "backpacker" Lubomír Peške Lubos Peske and Dušan Rak Dušan Rak talked us out of it. They are said to be the only black storks from the Czech Republic with "gps" this year, so we nodded at that. And of course, especially because, in my opinion, the purpose of rescue stations, in addition to a number of other activities, is also some "overlap" in saving animals, and this also requires the release of recovered animals and their young with "gps". For example, it is possible to draw attention to dangerous places for birds not only in Europe, but also in Asia and Africa.
We released them on August 17 at the game reserve, and the storks fished in the lake for five more days and spent the night at the lookout. To this day, I still don't understand what told them to leave. Perhaps the day is getting shorter, probably only they know exactly. The parents also had enough food here. Even so, a few days ago they started circling high and set off on the road. They circled together for a few kilometers, but they split up under Písek. The male (green) flew to Austria, turned around there and is now fishing in Třeboň ponds. The female (yellow) is about 100 km lower near the Danube in Austria. Both seem to be heading via an eastern route to Turkey, but that remains to be seen. By the way, one of our black storks from last year was photographed in the south of France, so it flew the western route via Gibraltar. I have no idea how they choose it, the first tens of kilometers they fly alone.
For now, however, they are at the very beginning of their journey and, as the case of our sea eagle showed, there are also many human traps waiting for them.
So keep your fingers crossed for them, they will really need it 🙏🙂. If you like our work, we will be very happy for your support, thank you🙂

Black Stork feeds chicks in Inner Mongolia nature reserve

A Black Stork was seen feeding its chicks in a nest on a cliff of a nature reserve in Inner Mongolia's Xilin Gol League. The migratory bird species is under first-class national protection in China. Their nesting is seen as a good indicator of the location's ecology. #ChinaBiodiversity #Planetmatters

Secret sensation: black storks in the Nuremberg Reichswald

So far there have been no black storks in the Nuremberg Reichswald. But after several black storks were spotted, there is now certainty: a black stork nest was recently discovered. A sensation. Where the nest is remains a secret.

A few weeks ago, forestry workers discovered a black stork nest in the Nuremberg Reichswald. The storks have built their nest on a pine tree at a lofty height of around 20 meters. After the discovery, a 300-meter protection zone was immediately set up, explains forestry manager Johannes Wurm: "This is a very special find that we have made. We will continue to keep the location secret. Black storks are extremely sensitive and react to the smallest disturbances at the breeding site "That's why we don't want people to approach the nest and look for it." The protection of the nest is the top priority. Because the peace and quiet at the breeding site is one of the most important factors for breeding success. That's why there is no work, no work and no hunting in this area during the breeding season. As long as the animals were in the nest, the forestry employees did not enter the area around the pine trees. District forester Kim Jüstl emphasizes how important this was: "If we had walked around there now and the animals had noticed this, then there would have been a risk that they would leave the nest or even break off the ongoing breeding." This should definitely be prevented.

The forestry team is very happy that the rare animals have now settled in the Reichswald. The next nest is in Allersberg, around 30 kilometers from Nuremberg. Black storks also occur in the Franconian Forest. According to forestry department manager Johannes Wurm, the fact that they now live and breed in the Reichswald is a real sensation.

The storks have now left Bavaria and flown to warmer climes. Since the nest is now empty, the foresters were able to get a more detailed picture of the nest. To do this, a forestry employee climbed onto the pine tree and took photos from above. Johannes Wurm wanted to make sure that the nest was stable so that the animals could return next year. "The nest is well anchored and is about half a meter high. It can weigh a few hundred kilos if it rains in. We wanted to make sure that it wouldn't fall, that was our fear. But it's really sitting in there. So in that sense it is "That's great, everything's good," said Wurm.

Black storks typically inhabit large, closed forests with wetlands, streams, swamps and forest ponds. The black storks often use broken trees and old nests of birds of prey or herons as a starting point for nest building. The nest is usually located close to the trunk, on the first strong side branch from below. The treetop then protects the nest from above.

The animals look for food within a radius of up to 20 kilometers. District forester Jüstl and her colleagues will do a lot to ensure that the black storks continue to feel comfortable in the Reichswald: "They feed primarily on amphibians, frogs, small mammals and also worms and are therefore dependent on water nearby. We will try to "To make your environment as good and beautiful as possible". This includes dredging a water pond near the nest. The forestry team hopes that the storks and perhaps their offspring will return to the Nuremberg Reichswald in the spring.

BocianiMy News 10.12.2023

All photographic material from 20 BocianiMy photo cameras was checked 👁 using the “photo by photo” method (approx. 65,000 photos).
The arrival dates of birds from the wintering areas (male and female), egg laying and hatching of chicks were determined. A characteristic feature is a clear peak in the return of males from migration to the nests in the second half of March and a very consistent timing of the return of females and males in late March. In 20 nests examined, the ratio of the number of males to the number of females was 19:13, which could indicate that in southeastern Poland males form the population reserves.

Most of the eggs were laid in the first half of April. The clutches were 2-5 eggs. In one case, two females (after “recovering” the male and the nest) laid a total of 7 eggs! The first chick hatched at the beginning of May and the last one on June 18th. Data were also collected, particularly on the presence of other bird and mammal species that may pose a threat to breeding areas. In 2023, pressure from the pine marten was recorded in southeastern Poland, but this predator did not cause direct breeding losses in any of the nests. These mammals were effectively repelled by adult and young storks.

The largest “aggressor” among the birds were were conspecifics, which led to partial or total losses in up to seven broods (38.8%) during the egg-laying and egg-incubation phases.
In three cases, a reduction in the number of young birds by parents was observed at the 1-2 day old stage.
A complete loss by the white-tailed eagle, Haliaeetus albicilla, was documented in a nest at the chick-rearing stage.
No losses from tawny owls were recorded 🦉 Strix aluco.
After the season, these owls visited 30% of the nests examined, which they used as a “canteen” after being occupied by rodents. In general, the season in Poland was not bad 👍, because the success rate for a couple that started breeding was 66.6%. A total of 25 young storks migrated from 20 observed nests.

Grzegorz the black stork SHOT in the Campania region
A week ago we received bad and sad news from southern Italy about Grzegorz being shot by a poacher ! We immediately started cooperation with #WWFItalia and Gruppo di Lavoro Italiano sulla Cicogna Nera - Glicine (G.L.I.Ci.Ne.) and flew ✈️ to #Naples. Volunteers from WWF reached Grzegorz first and took him to #VeterinaryHospitalFrullone. It turned out that the bird had a serious gunshot to the body and leg 😢 After a week, thanks to the doctors, it is in good condition, but it is not ready to be released yet. Shooting birds is unfortunately still practiced in some regions of Italy and other countries around the #Mediterranean. This practice is combated on a broader scale by #committeeagainstbirdslaughter, which we have also notified. However, the WWF Office for Legal Protection of Nature in Italy acted as a civil party in the trial currently conducted by the government agency #GruppoCarabinieriForestale in order to detect the perpetrator. Regardless, this barbaric act was condemned in the Italian #laRepubblica. According to ornithologists from G.L.I.Ci.Ne. it was the first (!) observation of a black stork wintering in this region of Italy, unfortunately it ended so dramatically 🙁 We hope that Grzegorz will soon regain his freedom and will be able to return to central Europe in spring. Heartfelt THANKS to many people who helped and cared about the fate of the Polish stork: Adriano, Alessandro, Alfonso, Anetta, Daniela, Elios, Franco, Maurizio, Lt. Col. Marco, Pasqal, Pierfrancesso, Patty, Tullia.

BTW: a northern bald ibis was also recently shot in Italy. A big loss.

20. February! Return of Black Storks from their winter destination:

The black storks are coming back
Yesterday and today we received the first reports that the black storks are back in the Eifel from their long journey to their winter quarters. If you consider that this is a dangerous journey to Africa with over 15,000 kilometers for the return flight, then we are very happy about every black stork that arrives back with us.

Please also report your sighting using this link. All reports will be treated as strictly confidential. Please make sure that you do not disturb returning storks near their nests or that the stork can see them there.

Here is a photo from last year in the Eifel, which M. Andres kindly made available to us.
