In the south of Luxembourg, between sloping vineyards and the river Moselle at Remerschen, a number of old gravel pits have been turned into a nature reserve with special emphasis on providing a haven for birds. It’s a peaceful place and one to which I return as often as possible.

It’s a shame that so many of these wild places only exist now because they are ‘managed’ in some way.

  2. […] Travel theme: environment | The question is not what you look at, but what you see – Thoreau […]

  3. I like to think of it as “protected” from those who would drive rough shod over every thing with four-wheel drive.

  4. It is a pity that these lovely places have to be created but its better than the alternative.
