Article summary

Based on a systematic survey, an averall analysis of the nesting habits and breeding success of the Black Stork in Hungary is given, focusing on the densest population. Breeding data throughout the country are updated, the most preferred habitats are determined and population trends are investigated. Based on data obtained till the end of the year 2000, we can estimate the number of breeding Black Stork pairs in Hungary at 250. In 1996 we estimated the number of brreding pairs at a maximum of 200. The number of known successful breedings in 2000 is 73, the known number of fledged youngs is 263. The average number of youngs per nest - considering successful breedings - in the year 2000 is 3.6. According to these figures one could conclude that the population has been increasing in the country since the mid 1990’s, but this may also indicate an increased observers activity reather than an increase in the number of mesting pairs.
