I read in Looduskalender that you are invited to send your stories from nature around your home.
I moved to live in Kärpla village, in a farmhouse that had been standing empty for more than six years. A couple of weeks later a white stork moved into the farm yard. While the house stood empty the stork nest was also empty for all the years. My question is: why do the white storks need someone to live in the house or near the nest?
