The Crau

This unique stony steppe habitat was once very extensive but is now being trashed at an alarming rate. Fruit Orchards, Agriculture, hideous Industrial Estates and Wind Turbines were all very obvious problems. We eventually found a group of Little Bustards and Pin-tailed Sandgrouse (photo above), but the future for them in this region is extremely bleak.
