Miribel-Jonage is home to a number of species of nesting birds. It also attracts many wintering and migrating waterbirds.
Miribel-Jonage is an old meander of the river Rhône. One can observe many species of birds here. Among the birds you can see here are Common Kingfisher, European Bee-eater, White Wagtail, Black-crowned Night-Heron, Osprey, Red Kite, Eurasian Hobby and Red-crested Pochard.
Located 5 minutes from the motorway, the 9 hectares of La Forestière (on a 23 hectare site) have the advantage of being immediately accessible. Access on foot from a car park at the end of the road. Click on the P in the map to get directions. It takes about 20-30 minutes before arriving at the lake (several routes possible). See the route (7 km) on the map below. In case of flood/high water the area may be flooded in some places.
The route is between 5 and 10 km flat depending on what you decide because there are different routes possible. Walk in relaxation mode and observe the birds on the trails around the lake. Taking a camera with you can be a good idea. With a little luck you can see European Bee-eater. Provide a little something to drink and nibble.
