Parc Moulin en Tan - France



Another excursion in France was a family visit to
Parc Moulin en Tan,
it is a real favourite for the girls
as there is so much to see.



This time I'm sharing photos of some of the bird life on the
 River Vanne which runs through the 15 hectares
of park land.




It was an extremely hot day
so we enjoyed staying under the shade of the trees
to try and keep cool!



I'm joining

Just beautiful Shane - wonderful to see so many gorgeous photos of your trip. Your photos of the river with the swans look like a Monet Painting :-)

What a very beautiful place to visit. That first shot looks like an impressionistic painting. I noticed on Gunilla's blog you mention you have never seen a wagtail. You are correct in that its tail is always moving. I am sending you a link fr a video if showed recently. Gunila's wagtial is called Pied but my wagtail on the video is a Grey Wagtail. However they both behave the same way. Also on the video is a Dipper adn indeed you will see how he 'dipps' her head. The link for the video is -

What an exciting place, filled with all sorts of things to enjoy. For me, the shade looks mighty tempting. I love the way the heron is fluffing his feathers!!

Thank you for visiting my blog in rainy England. That must be the most beautiful park to visit on a lovely sunny day, somewhere to cool off and enjoy all that nature has to offer.
