Article summary

The Black Stork gradually spreads into the areas from which it has historically disappeared and even extends its distribution into areas where it has never nested before. Since 1989, the number of discovered nests has increased from year to year. In this report, we asked the following questions: what is the progression and the colonization mode of the birds in the forest of Wallonia? On which criteria do the storks rely on to choose a nesting site? The main purpose of this study is to gather all the localizations of the nests found since the return of the bird in our region. All those data will be drawn on diffrent maps to show the main parameters for the Black Storks in the choice of the breeding site. A better knowledge of those parameters will help to define a better nesting site protection strategy, leading to a better conservation of this species. This cartography will allow us to study its colonization mode from year to year in our forests.
