The Veuve

The Veuve on La Digue is a nature reserve for one of the most endangered birds in the world, the Paradise Flycatcher that is only found on the small island of La Digue. Situated on the road to Grand Anse it is especially suitable to visit when you are one of the few people walking to Grand Anse rather than biking there because you can walk right through the Veuve and join the road again at the northern exit. Unfortunately, on our numerous visits, we have never really seen the flycatcher here in the Veuve, but elsewhere on La Digue. So keep your eyes open wherever you go and watch out for a bird with a long tail and a beautiful voice.
