Stork Weekend

Zwin Nature Park

The Zwin’s storks are already returning from their winter quarters before spring really begins, and are looking for nesting spots at the Zwin Nature Park. They will be staying until August. During the Stork Weekend, we’ll be taking a closer look at these very special birds.

A walk along the nesting poles

The Zwin guide will take you for a walk along the nesting poles in the park.

To join this brief tour, you can meet up with the guide on the hour from 10:00 to 15:00, on the entrance square in the park.

  • Times: 10:00 – 11:00 – 12:00 – 13:00 – 14:00 – 15:00
  • You don't need to book this walk ahead of time, it’s included with the Stork Weekend activities in the standard entrance ticket.

A guide at the stork tower

The park’s look changes quite a bit when these impressive birds have returned to their spots on the nesting platforms.

Would you like to know all about these beauties and where they’ve been all this time?
Visit the guide at the stork tower and take a look from the tower. You can look into the nest without disturbing the birds!
