Geocache Description:


[LAT] Vecā lapegļu alejā Valmieras – Mazsalacas ceļa malā skatāma Baltijā lielākā balto stārķu kolonija, kas ir arī Eiropā vistālāk uz ziemeļiem esošā balto stārķu masveida ligzdošanas vieta. Šī vieta putnus pievelk ar bagātīgo barības bāzi – Burtnieka ezera tuvumu, kā arī dīķiem un mitrajām pļavām kolonijas tuvumā. Latvijā baltie stārķi ienākuši salīdzinoši vēlu – līdz ar intensīvu līdumu līšanu, jo tiem patīk atklātas ainavas. Par to, ka Latvijā baltie stārķi nav seni iemītnieki, liecina arī tas, ka tie praktiski nav minēti tautasdziesmās un teikās.

Šis slēpnis ir arī daļa no tūrisma akcijas "Simtgades dārgumi", ko organizē Valmieras Tūrisma informācijas centrs sadarbībā ar Kocēnu, Burtnieku un Beverīnas novadiem. Vairāk info: visit.valmiera.lv

[ENG] In the old larch alley on the Valmiera – Mazsalaca road side is viewable the largest colony of white starks in the Baltics, which is also the most northerly existing place in Europe for the mass nesting of white storks. This place attracts the birds with a rich food base - the proximity of Lake Burtnieks, as well as ponds and wet meadows near the colony. White starks have arrived relatively late in Latvia - with the intense land clearing, because they like open landscapes.

This cache is also part of tourism campaign “Centennial treasures”. More info: visit.valmiera.lv
