why not discover some of your own?
We live in an area where the roads are quiet so cycling and walking are a delight. You should be able to spot Hoopoes, Golden Orioles, Woodpeckers, Buzzards and Herons. In the summer evenings look out for the glowworms, owls and red squirrels.
..and the many villages you can explore for yourself. Driving on quiet roads, cycling along side the fields of sunflowers and sweetcorn where the only disturbance is the wildlife. Stop for a 'plat de jour and just enjoy..
