Bird watching with JoŽl

I am an experienced, enthusiastic amateur†who will willingly accompany you in discovering this wild side of our countryside.

Birds of the marshes and reedbeds of Mortagne sur Gironde

This is an exceptional site whose beauty and variety of bird-life will bring you moments of excitement and pleasure.

In the marshes you may see shelducks, elegant avocets, egrets, ducks and others.

Amongst the reedbeds, various types of warblers, goldfinches and other surprises await you.
Above, in the sky, birds of prey such as harriers, buzzards, black kites and storks are regularly seen.

 

Sightings from the 10th February :
About 900 avocettes
About 400 tadornes de belon
And a flock of 1500 grey cranes and about 200 geese
