Sadly, the opening hours in France are not anywhere approaching the RSPB opening hours: check them carefully before visiting. We were indebted to the couple of volunteers who opened the reserve for us on a Sunday afternoon!

My wife and I enjoy nature reserve in the UK, and especially our native Norfolk. This one was similar in many respects, with a building that is reception/office/exhibition and shop, and board walks from which one can view birds. Beautiful setting. A great tower hide, enjoyed by our grandchildren. Good explanatory illustrated boards with English. Beware ticks - one grandson got one!

We visit this reserve every year. That must say something about it. The facilities are good. There is a very useful visitors centre with a small shop area, a seating area, toilets and a gallery showing some excellent photography of birds and insects. There is ample parking. Outside, the reserve is divided in two by the roadway. The southern area is the newest, it has a long recycled boardwalk leading to a large, comfortable hide. The northern area is older but has four hides, however much of the wooden walkway is in need of repair. All the hides overlook old saltpans and marshes. In summer, we visit late June/early July, it can become busy in the hides, but be patient and the small number of visitors will move on. There is usually assistants on duty in one of the main hides, their English is good and they are most helpful in pointing out the species. My only niggle is the windows in the hides are often locked down. This can be annoying especially when photographing and observing birds. The solution is simple, this year we took a teaspoon with us that fitted the locks!!! There is a charge of around 5Euros per person and binoculars are available if you don't have your own. Like most bird reserves in June and July, there can be a limited number of birds but we have always seen enough to keep us coming back. While you are there ask about other birding spots in the area, I can recommend Duer, Suscinio and the Marais de Pen en Toul
