Spoon bills have been nesting in numbers in the Somme estuary near Calais

In the Loire estuary now Corncrakes are already calling now in the Marais Audubon names after Audubon who grew up here although he was born in Haiti from a navigator from the Loire estuary area wher he grew up to love birdlife and later take his love to America where he assisted Jerseymen declare Independance from George III of Hanover who helped him in the American War of Independance share his love for Jersey and our republicanism! Princeton University in Jersey became the headquaters of the Goldfinch or Pabor followers who wanted freedom from tyrrany and Hanoverians who lacked his love of Goldfinches rather than gold diggers!
Now on in France a huge Swift movement!
