Stork in Primorye
In late March, the crew of PrimDiscovery were fortunate to meet four storks and see how they inhabit their nests, how they expanded it and build it with twigs. These two nests are located near Luzan hill in Khankaisky natural reserve. Birds have built them on specially prepared fire-prevention artificial poles. Very soon almost all places of nests of the Oriental stork will be populated.

Currently, large-scale census of the Oriental stork is being carried out in the Amur-Heilong Ecoregion, including the North of China and the main places of wintering in the South of the PRC. The last time such work was carried out in Russia 13 years ago. PrimDiscovery team became an information partner of the project, and very soon on our website there will be reports from the expeditions of census.
