Long Description:
[FR] Site protégé de 150 hectares

Les terrées (terres réhaussées par ce qui a été retiré des fossés qui l'entourent) du Pain Béni accueillent la plus grande colonie de hérons du Marais Poitevin, près de 600 couples.

L'observatoire vous permettra peut-être d'admirer les 5 espèces qui y nichent : le héron cendré et l'aigrette garzette en hauteur, le garde-boeuf et le bihoreau au coeur des arbres et le héron pourpré en bas.
Pensez à votre matériel d'observation !
