Robins, white wagtails, swallows – these are just a few of the guests to be found in our gardens. Thanks to this photographic exhibition, organised with the help of the Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux (LPO, bird protection league), young and old alike will be able to discover the birds that populate the park and gardens at Villandry.

 

This educational exhibition stems from the 2012 award of the “Refuge LPO” label to the Villandry gardens by Allain Bougrain-Dubourg. With the richness of nearly 90 bird species, the château park is an ideal habitat thanks to its large insect population, made possible by the use of organic techniques in the gardens.

Building on this quality label, Villandry welcomed the association La Cambrousse during the 2013 season to produce a magnificent photographic record and immortalise large and small birds through the lenses of the association’s photographers.
