LA HÉRONNIÈRE DU PAIN BÉNI

Protected site of 150 hectares

Description

The burial grounds (lands enhanced by what has been removed from the surrounding ditches) of the Pain Béni are home to the largest colony of herons in the Marais Poitevin, nearly 600 pairs.

The observatory may allow you to admire the 5 species that nest there: the grey heron and the garzette egret above your heads, the bull guard and night heron in the heart of the trees and the purple heron at the bottom.
Remember to bring your observation equipment!
