One of the oldest nests of white storks in the Moscow region will now be under reliable protection

The press service of the Ministry of Ecology and Nature Management of the Moscow region announced the establishment of a security zone near one of the smallest specially protected natural territories of the Moscow region - a natural monument of regional significance "The Nest of the white stork in the village of Vysochki".

The area of this natural monument is only 0.3014 hectares. However, in such a small area there are valuable natural sites and attractions, for example, one of the oldest nests of white storks in the Moscow region.

"For the first time, storks built a nest on a high-rise water tower in 1978. Since then, Red Book birds have been breeding chicks in it every year. The largest brood of 6 chicks was recorded in 2010," the report says.

The main object of protection is the nest of white storks, which serves as a home for adult birds, and as a nursery for their younger young. However, 13 species of vertebrates have also been recorded in the protected area, including 1 species of amphibians, 11 species of birds and 1 species of mammals.
