25th July - 7th August France

Just returned from a very relaxing fortnight in the South of France. I had no birding planned and the oppressively hot weather made it even more unlikely, so I was more than happy to indulge in some when the temperature plummeted to 30 C. The day was spent around La Crau and the eastern saltpans of the Camargue.

Not surprisingly (due to the heat and timing) we failed to find any Little Bustard or Sandgrouse at La Crau but did see almost a dozen Rollers and many Stone Curlew.
