Where was I? The answer.

I spent some time in France, in the Languedoc, and mostly in the Aude and Herault. Very nice too, although we discovered the Tramontane wind.

A wetland with Garganey, Whiskered and Gull-billed Tern and lots of waders (although to be fair - this was in Spain not France)

Not Spain or Portugal – but almost as good and not so far away. 133 species of birds in four days at a civilised pace with good food, good company and good wine. We popped into Spain for one day too.

Thekla Lark, Red-rumped Swallow, Black Stork, Rock Sparrow and all in France. We looked for Spotless Starling but failed to see them – so we ate oysters instead!

    Although no reason why all of these shouldn't have been seen in the Languedoc.
