The Salt Marshes of the Marais Poitevin.

Les Mizottes are natural salt marsh pastures which are covered on high spring tides and are traditionally used for grazing.
They occupy the area beyond the dykes and are separated from the sea by mudflats, when the tide resides at low tide these mudflat stretch as far as the eye can see.
This is a flat landscape devoid of trees or shrubs, a place where man seldom goes other than the occasional farmer, walker or fisherman.
This is a land of waders and migratory birds, a habitat solely for nature..
