Description

You can make many beautiful walks around Torgny. The suggested 5 km walk on the map passes a forest and open fields, but also Nature Reserve Raymond Mayné. This reserve is small, with an area of 6 hectares, but is nevertheless special. The nature reserve has a warm and dry climate... almost Mediterranean! It includes old abandoned limestone quarries and calcareous grasslands. The fauna and flora are very special and surprising because of their Mediterranean character. Birds you can see in the area are European Turtle Dove, Golden Oriole, Red-backed Shrike, Wryneck, Red Kite, Black Kite, Eurasian Hobby, Yellowhammer, Lesser Whitethroat, Tree Pipit and Skylark.
