After a late morning shopping trip to Narbonne we took a picnic to the coast. First we took the road from Bages to Peyriac sur Mer. We noted some large rafts of Coot and scattered flocks of Greater Flamingos. There were also plenty of Little Egrets and a few Great White Egrets and a freshwater area held 15 Great Crested Grebes.
We moved on to Mandirac near Gruissan but things were similar to the previous visit except for 2 Cattle Egrets one of which posed conveniently with a Little Egret.
