Rodeo in Camargue

Camargue is the region defined by the delta of the Rhône river, in southern France.

Anyway, cattle was not what had allured me there.

My first birding trip, with the LPO (the French bird protection society), had led me there. That was in 2004, and I had never returned before this winter.
From Grenoble, it’s a 3-hour drive to Le Sambuc, a quiet but windswept village in the Natural Regional Park. I had not left early, so I arrived in Camargue only a couple of hours before sunset.

In this article, I explain some practicalities about our journey. Welcome 🙂
