Sud France

WIL_1573-1

The scenery is spectacular along the south coast of France as I head from Barcelona to Montpellier. Water stretches both side of the train and occasionally it seems like we are traveling in some sort of high speed boat. Masses of flamingos, herons, egrets and birds of prey can be seen along the marshy strips of land. A nature paradise, perfect for wading birds and ducks.

Flamingos group together on an inshore lake as the sun sets behind them.

Two flamingos wade in shallow water with their heads down.

What appears to be a siege of herons heading south, maybe for the winter. Below more flamingos on the waters edge.
