French Birding


I have been fortunate this spring to have been provided with an opportunity to lead wildlife tours on behalf of Naturetrek and one of them was to Provence and the Camargue in South France. The following images were taken in April this year whilst conducting the first tour with visits to the summit of Mount Ventoux (1900 metres) and a variety of sites in the dry hills and plateaus of the north of the district. We then finished with a couple of days in the coastal wetlands of the bird-famous Camargue. Interestingly though, these days it is possible to see most of these birds in the UK with a little bit of effort!
