Back to the Camargue


The confinement linked to covid 19 from the month of March deprived us this year of one of the most beautiful period of the season :

  • return of certain migratory birds,
  • nesting period for a large number of species.

The only consolation, for nature lovers; many species enjoyed a relative tranquility due to the absence of humans and the slowdown in their activities ...In particular, we have seen a baby boom among the flamingos (more than 12,000 births); other elements are also at the origin of this phenomenon.

The confinement being lifted, the photo outings are envisaged, however a certain number of sites remain closed ...

First real photo outing at the beginning of June, since the containment was lifted. Some beautiful encounters with the Great Egret, the Purple Heron, the Black-crowned Night Heron; also seen on the marsh the Squacco Heron, the Common Tern, the Gull-billed Tern, and the white stork.
