  • Very enjoyable day. Easy to see various birds and if you're lucky you may see some different animals! Nice little place to get a drink at the start and not overly expensive. Parking not great as not a lot of spaces unless you get there early/late. Be aware the narratives around the place are mostly in French. Good picture diagrams to look at though.
  • Park in car park not adjacent to entrance. It's much bigger. Exploring the area you will see all the birds here but at the park it's in all in one place. Easy paths for walking. Loads of explanatory signs in English. Take a picnic for a great visit
