Watching the storks

THIS YEAR both ornithologists and the general public can watch via the internet a family of storks as they arrive, mate, hatch their eggs, raise their young and, eventually, leave their nest to migrate south for the winter.

THIS YEAR both ornithologists and the general public can watch via the internet a family of storks as they arrive, mate, hatch their eggs, raise their young and, eventually, leave their nest to migrate south for the winter.

Maroš Stano of the Environment Ministry told the TASR newswire that the first storks arrived at the Tatras National Park (TANAP) in April. An online broadcast from a stork’s nest can be followed at www.spravatanap.sk, in the živá kamera / live cam section. “Any viewer who can trace the first hatching of the eggs in the nest and sends an email to info@ kukaj.sk, can win a reward,” Stano said. Protectionists, along with the operator of the camera, plan to monitor the storks until the last week of August, when the stork families will fly to winter destinations in Africa.

“Even the presence of cameras and broadcast equipment does not disturb the storks,” Stano said.

Cameras with zoom, night vision and microphones have been installed 20 metres away from the nest on a chimney of an elementary school in Liptovský Mikuláš, and the broadcast will be secured by a second camera 200 metres away from the nest.
