Pentowo

Pentowo – the European Stork Village is situated above the Narew river valley close to Tykocin. It is an estate consisting of a 100-year old manor house and outbuildings. What is unusual is that white storks developed such a liking for this place. There are as many as 21 stork nests within the estate. The nests have been built on top of the buildings, trees and utility poles. The history of Pentowo’s relationship with storks dates back to 1991.After a hurricane, storks started to build their nests on top of the broken trees. Initially, there were only a handful of storks but year after year new birds were joining in. Today, Pentowo is one of the biggest white stork breeding colonies in Poland.

German organization EURONATUR (European Nature Heritage Fund) awarded the colony with the title of the European Stork Village. Pentowo is the only place in Poland that holds the title. European Stork Village is a project conducted by North Podlasie Association of Bird Protection. Pentowo’s owners for many years,  have been running a tourist farm. The manor house and the outbuildings are at their guests disposal. Still, the storks remain the biggest attraction. In order not to disturb the birds special walking paths have been outlined. Another attraction of the farm are Polish ponies and Polish red cattle.
