Accessible site maps on a nature reserve!

 I recently went to France and was lucky enough to visit the Marquenterre nature reserve in the Baie de Somme.  I saw a kingfisher there!!  My first.  It was brilliant and I'm still excited about it.

I also noticed that they'd made their site maps accesible to blind and visually impaired people.  How you ask?  By placing braille over the written text and by using different types of material as the key for the site map.  See here:




Isn't that just fabulous?  So simple yet so effective.  I've never seen that kind of thing in England.

Sounds like a very organised sort of place! Glad you had a good time. And saw a kingfisher! They're beautiful, aren't they? We're lucky enough to live near the Slimbridge Wildlife and Wetlands centre here in Gloucestershire which is a fantastic place for observing nature.
