Stork watching for nature lovers Oct 22, 2008
Herwijnen has one of the few stork villages in the Netherlands. As a result, storks are in abundance here. You can find them in fields in the polder. But the village is where there nests are.
The stork village is next to the dike, and located in the historical Kerkeneind. So if you are in Herwijnen, you can take a stroll through the Kerkeneind after (or before) going to the storks.
Stork's nest are very high above the ground. The build their nests on top of long poles. The stork village really consists of nothing more than a field with some poles with nests on them. So you don't have to spend an entire day here.
However, be sure to visit at the right time of year. Otherwise, there really is nothing to see.
But, when it's the right time of year and the storks are nesting, it's great to see them.
