The 82-hectare protected area of the Falaise aux Vautours was originally a haven for 10 griffin vulture pairs nesting in the limestone cliffs above the villages. Now, there are more than 120 couples, plus various other raptors – notably a couple of Egyptian vultures who come back every springtime; the miniature cameras beam images from the heart of their nest. La Falaise aux Vautours (Cliff of the Vultures) shows live, big-screen, round-the-clock images from nests on the cliffs 500m higher up. If the moment’s right, you can peek in on nesting, hatching and feeding in real time. There’s also a good display about vultures.
