Water birds find shelter at the Parc du Peuple de l’herbe

On 17th January, as part of the international Wetlands agreement, water birds were counted by volunteers from the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO – Bird Protection League) and the duckCentre Ornithologique Île-de-France (CORIF – Île-de-France Ornithological Centre), on the Vieille Ferme and La Galiotte ponds and eight species were listed.

Amongst others, great crested grebes and some rarer tufted ducks (cf. photo opposite) and gadwalls have found the area welcoming and set up home there, to the delight of children, walking enthusiasts and bird watchers alike.
