Mill Tower, Isny / Muehlturm, Isny
This one is from the 16th century, next to the town mill which houses a museum now. Today south of it the fortified city wall ends. Of late, in a tree next to it Isny got a second Stork's nest. There had been a Nest on the cityhall for a long time, and there seemed also one or more on some modern steel structure further from downtown, but so far I never spotted one on a tree in Isny. They seem to expand there. / Der hier ist aus dem 16ten Jahrhundert, gleich neben der Stadtmuehle, die nun ein Museum beherrbergt. Frueher ein Teil der Wehranlage, ended die Stadtmauer jetzt suedlich des Turms. Seit neuestem gibt es im Baum nebenan ein weiteres Storchennest. Auf dem Rathaus gab es ja schon sehr lange ein Nest und in den letzten Jahren schien es auch eines oder mehr auf einer Eisentraegerstruktur ausserhalb der Stadt zu geben, aber ein Baumnest in Isny habe ich noch nie bemerkt. Anscheinend expandiert diese Kolonie!

Manmade buildings are their more common choice in the rural cliche as well as in modern real life. Trees are only taken when the birds become rather numerous, and food wont get less in spite of the higher density. Then a couple wont be all territorial about the whole wetland and just defend the personal nestsite. The less dominant storks will go to look for a chimney, pole or tree near the original area nest. In the case of Isny population seems to have exploded in the recent years. The person looking after the Storks writes on her blog about 8 couples breeding around the area this year but most loosing the brood in the late cold spell.
