Discovering a rare bird in Lalbenque

As part of a program related to farming, the LPO Lot wants to discover the screaming Oedicnemus, an atypical bird of the Causses. The size of a small hen, this bird with long legs and big yellow eyes is very discreet during the day. However, when night comes, he utters loud, loud shouts, hence his “screaming” name. It is present on vast areas of low vegetation, such as grazed fields, young crops or dry lawns well represented in the causses.

Today, the screaming Oedicnemus struggles to find a habitat that suits him. The environments he loves close and insects, his favorite prey, are becoming increasingly rare. Today, it is difficult to know the size of its population in the Lot.

Friday, September 28, 2018 from 7 pm to 9 pm at Lalbenque. Go to the pond at Marcenac (Lalbenque) at 7 pm for a carpool to the observation point. Released from 7 pm to 9 pm Rens. LPO Lo at 05 65 22 28 12.

Hot air ballons of Rocamadour

For 33 years, the last weekend of September, the hot air balloons of Rocamadour offer a breathtaking show between heaven and earth!

Appeared in 1782 thanks to the Montgolfier brothers, the ballooning has been making us dream for more than 200 years. Because who has ever imagined traveling in the air? A unique sensation of sweetness, silence and wonder. Moments of dreams and emotions Whether you are a spectator or an actor, the Montgolfière provides an incredible sensation: when one climbs to the verticality of our beautiful Marian City, when one touches the rocks, the treetops, the crazy grass of the Causse, the morning mist when watching the animals frolic. Ballooning is a unique, intense experience … an amazing trip! Taking altitude gives us moments of dreams, emotions that we share, together, pilots and passengers.

Marvel at the endless ballet of multicolored balloons … And these breathtaking landscapes …

The 30 balloons will be ready for flight on Saturday and Sunday at 8 am and 5 pm in the Alzou canyon.
