The Crau is one of the last mediterranean stone steppes and therefore holds many rare species. Sadly it is under high pressure of land-use and agriculture. Car testing areas and an airport have covered parts of the steppe in recent times. Nevertheless steppe breeding birds like the Little Bustard, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse and Calandra Lark still survive and can be seen in La Crau. In Winter you can also see flocks of European Golden-Plover and Northern Lapwing or even Richard's Pipit.
There is a nice car parking area - see the P on the map. The best tracks are drawn on the map, but there might be even more tracks.
