Swiss Storks



When the stork was an endangered specie, a stork breeding and nesting area was established near Laura and Thomas' home in Bellach. When we visited, there were only 39 storks still there as most has already started their migration to Africa. It appeared that many local homeowners were less than enthusiastic about the new hardy stork population, as storks were nesting on nearly every roof, with streams of stork poop down the roof and sides of buildings.
