France 2011 (Paris & Lac du Der)


Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites


José and her father wanted to visit the l'Agriculture in Paris once.
We decided to visit it during the weekend of February 25-27 2011. And when one is in Paris for the first time,
we had to visit at least some of the famous architectural highlights of the city. At sunday we dropped of José's dad at the trainstation
Gare du Nord and drove straight to the Champagne area, to have some time on our own.

Here we stayed from February 27 until March 3 2011, where we put up our tent in Arrigny,
just a stone-throw away from the famous Lac Du Der Chantecoq. It was nice to camp again, allthough quite cold
(we had some night frost at least one night!). Highlight - for sure - were the thousands of Cranes
which use this area as stopover at their migration to the north.
