Premiere preuve contemporaine de reproduction du heron pourpre Ardea purpurea en Haute-Saone (France)

, : Premiere preuve contemporaine de reproduction du heron pourpre Ardea purpurea en Haute-Saone (France). Nos OiseauxJuin; 53(2): 103-108 No 484

In 2001, after strong evidence resulting from observations made a few years previously, the breeding of Purple Heron was confirmed on the marsh known as Vy-le-Ferroux in the Haute-Saone (70) (Franche-Comte region, eastern France). The observations carried out at that time constitute the first recorded breeding of this heron in the area since at least the 19th century. Although previous nesting is possible, the small amount of data collected on the breeding biology seems to validate the hypothesis of a recent settlement. This species reproduced successfully at least in 2002 and 2005. Because of the present status of the species which is critically in decline, this case of breeding gives the marsh of Vy-le-Ferroux a great interest.
