Sandpipers, turners,… On the island of Ré (Charente-Maritime), as winter approaches, many species of birds settle on the famous island. These include large migrants, who come from Russia and Scandinavia, to rest in the reserve. They will stay for the time of high tide, to feed at low tide in the mudflat of Fier d’Ars.
These birds have traveled thousands of kilometers in a few days to find the perfect home. Among members of the Bird Protection League, these winter gatherings are a pleasure for the eyes and for the ears. “Areas like the island of Ré, the Bay of Somme and the Arcachon basin are very rich, with immense mudflats. They are like restaurants for birds “, considers Hervé Roques, ornithologist.
