Artist's Description

a little closer to my new love :)) The Long Eared Owl

Taken at the Medieval Town of Chauvigny. Chauvigny is a commune in the Vienne department in the Poitou-Charentes region in western France.

Chauvigny is located 20 miles (32 km) east of Poitiers by rail. The town is finely situated overlooking the Vienne River and a small brook. Chauvigny is twinned with Billericay in Essex, England.
Chauvigny features two interesting Romanesque churches, both restored in modern times. There are also ruins of a château of the bishops of Poitiers, and of several other strongholds.

Near Chauvigny is the curious bone-cavern of Jioux, the entrance to which is fortified by large blocks of stone.

The town carries on limeburning and plaster-manufacture, and there are stone quarries in the vicinity. Trade is in wool and feathers.

At the top of the town a Bird Show is held – the show birds fly daily (weather permitting!) They have many different breeds including Vultures! A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, watching and learning and the views!!
