Land of birds

Thus, you will be able to observe the spectacle of migratory birds such as grey cranes, black storks and purple herons throughout the seasons.
Symphony of the bellow
At the beginning of autumn, during the mating season, loud and raucous cries resound every night in the Forêt d'Orient. The stag's bellow marks the beginning of the breeding season. Alone or accompanied by a forest guide, you can enjoy this unique spectacle.
