Maison Mimosa - A birdwatchers French Paradise

Article text
The Vendee is on the migratory route for many species, so large numbers of birds are seen in spring and autumn. A yearly activity not to be missed is the great migration south from September to November through the Point de Aiguillon estuary and bay area. Up to 420,000 migratory birds mostly Goldfinches, Song Thrush, Skylarks, Swallows and finches of all descriptions gather here before heading for warmer winters in Africa. The region is a popular nesting area for Avocets, Terns and Lapwings and, between April and September for Storks, which favour sites in the open marshland between Chateauneuf and Velluire. The mudflats of the bay of Bourgneuf provide an incredible wintertime spectacle at high tide when thousands of wading birds advance with the rising water, probing the mud for food. Herons, Egrets and other marshland birds are often seen on the salt-meadows, and Brent Geese arrive in large numbers during December on the Marais Breton. See Vendee LPO
