Among the 280 bird species that have been recorded, some of the rarer ones (Whiskered tern, Black-necked grebe, and Purple heron) breed in good numbers, and are easy to spot. Sightings at Saule des Bois include Black Woodpecker, Butcher Bird and Golden Oriole.

Why not join us on our bird watching tours and take advantage of our knowledge? If there are particular species that you want to see we will do our best to find them for you. Join us for a day, or every day for a week, and enjoy spotting many of the splendid birds this stunning region of France has to offer.
