Grear set! TFS.

It is Heiloo indeed.
The only storks I know of are in a small kind of zoo Hoenderdaell in Anna Paulowna.



But we are probably in the wrong themed view now

think so?
O stands for Ooievaar aka 'dutch' stork? ;-)

beautiful!! however, you must be closer to several 'stork villages' than we are? (although there must be lots of storks near the Zwin, on the other side of the Schelde). TFS!

You are right.

There is an empty stork pole in Heiloo, but that hasn't attracted any yet. I am not aware of any village nearby, but not an expert on this subject. May have a look on internet.

O is for Ooievaar *grin*




WWW will certainly provide answers? found:
http://www.ooievaars.eu/0800nieuws_ooievaarsinhetnieuws/default.html

(aware of distances though. -small country, but still?-. my mother was born in Schagerbrug -family from Den Helder, she moved to Gouda when she was 6-, but never been there. did visit a friend in Heerhugowaard, (bit 'higher' than Heiloo I presume?), once by CAR, through endless 2 lane roads (!)).

our youngsters were not ringed, because someone had to come from Drenthe for the job! rules(!) so we don't know if it was 1 of the kids, nesting on a crane ;-) http://www.omroepzeeland.nl/nieuws/2015-04-15/847875/gapinge-vergaapt-zich-aan-ooievaars#.WIyXVU0zXct   

'my' storks have been on the nest for several winters, i.e. next to the food bucket for the shelter birds! to our astonishment other storks came to collect the kids for their Africa travels! while the -really good!!!- parents stayed on the nest.
after that they have been away for a long time (Africa?) and last year ma stork returned with a new man! pa stork has vanished. died? papa was French, he was ringed on june 27th, 2008 in nature reserve Marquenterre, in the bay of the Somme. (he would greet me every time I showed up by clattering his bill). after they had moved their entire nest to the top of the tree, several storks showed up to move onto the empty wheel-on-a-pole. but were chased off. in what c/b described as stork wars. 'my' storks even bullied the shelter's handicapped storks, to the degree that they were moved to the province of Friesland. (but also because they had moved inside, since the male kept pushing the handicapped (1 winged) girl into the pond ).     
you'll need a nest that is rel. low!
as a kid I was dragged along to the stork nest on Oudewater city hall numerous times. interesting, but a lot of neck stretching!

Interesting background info Angora, thanks for that. I will certainly have a look at the website. A small world anyhow, I was born and raised in Den Helder. Driving there frequently to visit family. Distances are relative. I have driven through whole of Europe for the sports career of my daughter.

Ok, one more last O for Ooievaar than.



Regards
Fred

O is for Ooievaar (dutch for Stork) ...lepelaar...











beautiful!! shame about that stupid fence. (our stork built his own nest, from scratch. but always kept reconstructing/refurnishing).
of course distances are relative, but what I meant was that you wouldn't like 'your' nest to be 30, 50 of more kilometers away, because I can promise you you would want to return when there are kids, esp. when they are about to take their 1st -kamikaze- flights.
from the moment the eggs had hatched, I visited approx. every other day. or sometimes evening. (about 5 kilometers from here) and it was never the same. learned a lot!
until may of the following year, 2013, it was like forever winter and therefore no succesful baby-making. the next year, 2014, they decided to move to the top of the tree, their former observation post. which immediately started to tilt dangerously.
they have been away winters, (finally migrating again?), and came back home. there have always been storks passing, that tried to take over the nest from time to time, once resulting in the death of the kids, who were found on the ground. last year there were 2? kids, but didn't even bother to try to make pics. no use, no fun. (despite the literally 10.000s of pics , many of which I have never even seen, I deeply regret all the missed opportunities).
as far as I know, they reside in their penthouse up to this day. tree is like an apartment building, tenants on the 2nd floor are egrets. ;-)
(I still keep 1 of their big black feathers in my car, for luck? :-)).



UP!

(been in Den Helder only once -very cold & windy! ;-) -, but never knew any of the great-grandparents. and just once on Texel.
(shame on me! great-grandfather once was mayor of Vlieland). small country?)
speaking of... lepelaar/spoonbill, takkendief?
huge colony not far from here. until people decided to offer them another piece of land. (and guess what...! )
