Lack of breeding sites for storks can be a problem where good habitats are around. In the Danube Delta (Europe, Romania), cutting and selling the reed is almost the only source of income for the local people. The reed is deposited in the field next from where it was harvested, until is sold or transported . In the spring of 2008, a pair of storks built a nest on this almost 3 meters high pile of reed and it's there ever since as the owners refused to destroy the nest.
