Campigny fields

Patrimoine naturel,

CANAPVILLE

In winter, the land becomes saturated with water. On the banks of the Touques, the meadows of Campigny unleash their abundant vegetation. The tall grasses are almost at head height alongside clusters of flowers, dominated by aconite blue. All around, the rampant vegetation mixes meadowsweet, Ragged Robin and great wild angelica. In this wetland in the valley bottom, species grow that are more associated with mountainsides, not valleys in the Pays d'Auge. The site reveals itself in the summer when the aconite and bistort flower. It's also a good time to spot rare butterflies that are a feature of these environments: the buff tip moth and the lesser marbled fritillary.
