The life of the storks at the Swiss National Stud Farm

Jun 11, 2023
Avenches - Visits and guided tours

Come and meet the most surprising resident of the Swiss National Stud Farm: the white stork!

Every year, between mid-January and mid-March, more than 100 white storks return to their nests on the Agroscope Swiss National Stud Farm site after spending 6 months in the warmer southern countries. The faithful pairs usually nest in the same nests from one year to the next. The courtyard and the surroundings of the Swiss National Stud Farm resound with their characteristic clattering.
Your guide, nicknamed "Mr. Stork", knows the area like the back of his hand and will take you to meet this majestic wader!
