The Parc naturel régional de la Brenne is a large area in central France which includes some important wetlands, woodlands and grasslands, as well as many small villages and agricultural areas.

Driving the tree shaded back roads, you will encounter Common Wood-Pigeon, Eurasian Turtle-Dove, the strange and wonderful Hoopoe, Yellowhammer and Eurasian Jay, and common birds like the Chaffinch, Eurasian Blackbird and European Goldfinch.

More open fields host Red-legged Partridge, Red-backed Shrike, Black Kite and Eurasian Buzzard.

There is a visiter center near Saint-Michel-en-Brenne which has a boardwalk over the marsh as well as a number of hides in the area. You may see Black-headed Gull, Great-crested, Eared and Little Grebes, Eurasian Coot, Eurasian Reed-Warbler, Long-tailed Tit, Gray Heron and Purple Heron,  and Little Egret.

I would recommend it as a fine way to spend a day.
