Situation in south-eastern France

An initial study of the situation in the south-east is very encouraging as 22 couples have been counted, a total of 2 more than last year, with 20 pairs having laid eggs (compared with 17 last year). All the pairs present last year have returned, except in the Causses where only 2 of the 4 pairs from 2010 are nesting (with one late clutch).
