The Mediterranean basin is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots – and the Languedoc Roussillon area is part of it!
With spring and autumn migration as well as plenty of resident Mediterranean species this is a great area for birdwatching…
And in the words of the late Derek Moore OBE:
Languedoc is not a favoured area by British birders, most preferring the Camargue, but I can strongly recommend trying the region. Most of the exciting birds of France are found in the area and there is more to be done. … Add to that great food, wine and weather and you have everything.
