What to visit? 

Did you know? 

Since 2018, the village of Allenjoie has seen a few storks pass through, and we have noticed attempts to build nests... 

In 2019, a collaboration between the municipality, the League for the Protection of Birds and the ENEDIS company resulted in the installation of a mast surmounted by a basket intended to facilitate the construction of a nest.

It was in the spring of 2020 that the first installation of a couple took place, followed by brooding and the birth of 2 storks which developed before taking flight. This phenomenon has been repeated every year since. 

Note: Allenjoie is the only town in the Doubs to host a pair of storks that nest and provide offspring. Undoubtedly the renowned quality of welcome of this village! 

The nest is located in the heart of the village, near the playground, rue de l'Ecluse. The favorable period for observation is from March to July, approximately.
