In order to offer the animals a home in the future, a new stork mast was built nearby. “It consists of parts of the old crane, is 21 meters high and has a solid concrete foundation,” reported the construction company. Special brackets were attached to the frame for the nests. According to the LBV, more than 750 pairs of white storks nested in the Free State in 2020. Last winter, around 300 animals would have waived the flight to the south and stayed in Bavaria.
