About this book

Language: French

Oiseaux au fil d'Étangs is a remarkable photographic testimony: naturalists since childhood, Frédéric Larrey and Thomas Roger, have assembled an exceptional collection of shots on multiple outings in all seasons for several years. The coast of Languedoc-Roussillon in France is unique in its kind by the string of lagoons it contains. Each body of water is a refuge, a feeding and breeding area for a large number of bird species.

The texts, written by two of the best birds specialists in Languedoc-Roussillon, Patrice Cramm and Xavier Rufray, summarize 20 years of unequaled experience on the birds of the lagoons. The publication of such a book also aims to constitute a "Promotional showcase" of the great environmental richness of the lagoons and marshes of the Mediterranean coast and the different local practices that favour the existence and maintenance of such natural environments. Ten naturalistic walks are described in this book.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage Oiseaux au fil d'Étangs constitue un témoignage photographique remarquable : naturalistes depuis l’enfance, Frédéric Larrey et Thomas Roger, en multipliant les sorties en toutes saisons durant plusieurs années ont constitué une collection de clichés exceptionnelle. Le littoral du Languedoc-Roussillon est unique en son genre par le chapelet de lagunes qu’il renferme. Chaque étendue d’eau est une zone de refuge, d’alimentation et de reproduction pour un grand nombre d’espèces d’oiseaux.

Les textes, rédigés par deux des meilleurs spécialistes des oiseaux en Languedoc-Roussillon, Patrice Cramm et Xavier Rufray, résument 20 ans d’une expérience inégalée sur les oiseaux des lagunes.La publication d’un tel ouvrage a également pour objectif de constituer une “ vitrine promotionnelle ” de la très grande richesse environnementale des lagunes et marais du littoral méditerranéen et des différentes pratiques locales qui favorisent l’existence et le maintien de tels milieux naturels. 10 balades naturalistes sont proposées dans cet ouvrage.
