A rich birdlife
The Lac du Der-Chantecoq (Der-Chantecoq Lake) spreads out its 4,800 hectares in the Humid Champagne region. Surrounded by forests, some of which are marshy, it offers all the food and space necessary for migratory birds such as the Common Cranes (Grus grus).

The Humid Champagne extends over three departments: Aube, Marne and Haute-Marne.
