A very busy start to the summer with a 3 week residential tour.
Venues included the Crozon peninsula, Etang de Pont Samuel, Etang de Grand Roz, Foret de Quenecan, Reserve de Sene, Wolf rescue centre and Grande Briere together with many smaller excursions.
Fantastic scenery very mixed weather, very windy and wet on the Crozon peninsula unfortunately didn't manage to see Peregrines or Red Billed chough because of the weather. Butterflies were not too evident except new emergences of Marbled White, Meadow Brown and Gatekeepers, a few first sightings of Skippers and the large, Silver washed Fritillary.
Fantastic array of birds as always on the Grande Briere, Black Kites, Marsh harriers and Buzzards. Spoonbill, Little, Cattle and Great Egret, White stork, Night Heron, Black winged stilt and many smaller waders numerous Grey Heron a Purple Heron Whiskered and a glimpse of a Black tern. So all in all a very high quality selection of birds to see.
