Read the articles in English about them!

Thanks to a kindly permission (thanks a lot!) of the editors of the only one English-language monograph of the White Stork in Poland “The White Stork in Poland: studies in biology, ecology and conservation” - professors Piotr Tryjanowski, Tim H. Sparks and Leszek Jerzak, permission of Bogucki Wydawnictwo Naukowe (Bogucki Scientific Editions, http://www.bogucki.com.pl) and our co-authors - we have a possibility and pleasure to make accessible for visitors of our website a few articles from this very interesting book, about studies done in South Wielkopolska region and by the members of South Wielkopolska Group of the Polish Society for the Protection of Birds mainly.
One of these articles (Dolata 2006b) we propose to read as a first, because it can be helpful for the foreign people to understand the special position of the White Stork in Polish tradition, culture, researches and protection efforts. In the next (Dolata 2006a) You can find information and first year results of this on-line monitoring project of this species nest in Przygodzice village, called “Close to Storks”, which website you are visiting now – it can be a good background for observations of this nest.
From the another reason we want to recommend an article of Antczak & Dolata (2006) - according to our knowledge it is first paper in the European White Stork bibliography especially focused on the non-breeding fraction. The fourth article (Kosicki et al. 2006) is a review of knowledge (surprisingly very weak) about White Stork’s food in Poland, including own new data, partly from South Wielkopolska region, and interesting part about energy demand of storks. Fifth article (Orłowski et al. 2006) is first in the Central Europe about heavy metal concentrations in feathers of White Storks, with some methodological implications. The last but not least, sixth article (Rachel 2006) describing foraging sites of breeding White Storks in our region.
We have a hope that all of them will be interesting for the readers.
