French Trip - Day 3 - 16/5/13

Woke up to a very strong NW wind (apparantly happens a lot around this area) so started with a seawatch. We walked the surrounding area for any new migrants before driving north visiting many sites. A 2 hour drive around the Mediterranean Coast to the Camargue, we were surpirised to find the wind had dropped, allowing some excellent birding. We ended our day at St. Martin Le Crau.
