On April 28, 2019, unidentified persons set fire to the Gilchin River valley near the village of Tambovka, Amur Region. Far East storks, cranes and other wetland birds nest and feed in the valley and flood plain of the river. This time the storks were lucky, their nest is located at a safe height, on a metal support of a power line .. In general, every year, several stork nests burn from such fires along with eggs and chicks, not to mention smaller birds nesting on the ground.
