Because of the decrease in the storks population in the Netherlands, the Dutch Association for the Protection of Birds has made a storks reserve in the polder near Groot-Ammers in the Alblasserwaard. The pinioned birds were purchased abroad. After they've been ringed, they are released. With nests on 1.5m high poles. Also footage of empty storks nests near farms. With archive footage of storks in nests on chimneys and on poles.
