Nature of the Vercors - a Secret Corner of France illustrated talk
With the highest point at the Grand Veymont (2341m), the Vercors is a jumble of limestone mountains and river-cut gorges mainly to the south west of Grenoble. It truly is a scenically stunning location to visit. Then you add in the broad range of wildlife to be seen including high Alpine meadows that are full of insects feeding from and consequently pollinating a wonderful array of wild flowers.
The talk, for instance, includes over 25 species of wild orchids but there are a possible 35 or more to see when we visit in late spring or early summer. Mammals here include Deer, Chamois, Alpine Ibex and Alpine Marmot while birds range from a possible 4 species of Vulture right down to Firecrests and Citril Finches. In short, it is a wonderful place to visit as the talk demonstrates. You can even join one of my tours to this beautiful location. To see the full list of my easy-going wildlife holidays click here.
