An important migratory route
The Orient Forest Regional Nature Park is home to a diversity of aquatic, marsh, and terrestrial habitats. It also extends on the way of the avifauna migratory routes. These characteristics make the park an important ornithological site. During the migration period, between 500 and 5,000 common cranes are stationed on the lakes daily. Between 100 and 200 birds will spend the winter there. Due to the configuration and the proximity of the forest, the "lac d'Orient" is particularly attractive for birds. The mudflats uncovered there in the fall are ideal areas for foraging and resting.
