Follow the storks and fly to Poland this Spring.
Every Spring, thousands of white storks arrive in Poland from Africa.
These big magestic birds are a very common and delightful sight in the polish countryside. You can spot them in their nests on the telegraph poles and on the roofs of barrns & houses.
At about 1m long with a 2m wing span and white coloured body and head and a bright red beak and legs, these seasonal visitors are quite a sight.
They spend Winter in southern Africa, travelling over 8,000km in 4 months to reach Europe by the end of March.
Poland has the highest population of white storks in Europe, there is even a European stork village in Tykocim (North East Poland) on the ‘Stork Trail’, leading from Bilowieckie National Park to Biebrzanski and Narwinski National Park.
