This is beyond the older hide overlooking the ponds at the back of Étang Ricot...
so drive on past the first parking area and stick to the D44 until you reach the second. [Near a slight bend to the left]

There was a lot of activity, but nothing really special... some good views of Teal [Anas crecca] Sarcelle d'hiver... along with coot, cormorants and colverts [Mallard duck]... so the rest of this blog will be in pictures...
|Coot [with a tide line!]|
|Colverts... and a couple of female Teal|
A'dabbling we will go...o... a'dabbling we will go!
|Teal... one up... three down|
|Teal... two up... two down|
Six posts from a trip to the Brenne... and in winter, too... must go more often!
|Go on! Quack orf outa here! 'Smy trunk!!|
And we never did make it back to the Étang Purais.
