La Ferme aux Grues is an observatory overlooking a field where Common Crane are fed by the LPO (BirdLife France) so that they do not cause too much damage in the surrounding fields land and to avoid damage to crops. The presence of Common Crane on the plots of the farm is very random. Only when the birds are fed between February 15 and March 5 on the farm you have a good chance to observe Common Crane here.


Français: Il y a un observatoire qui donne sur un champ où les grues sont nourries par la LPO (Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux) pour qu'elles ne fassent pas trop de dégats dans les champs alentours.



Access is via the crane farm (it's free). Click on the P in the map for directions.
