#1: The point and view to the North

English

30-avr-2013 -- En cours de route vers la Baie de Somme, nous passons tout près du point 50N 3E. Très facile à trouver, il y a un parking près des éoliennes à moins de 100 m.

Le site n'a pas changé depuis la dernière visite en août 2010. Les éoliennes tournent toujours, il y a du vent aujourd'hui et il fait froid. Des céréales ont été semées dans le champ (du blé ?) et comme elles sont encore toutes jeunes, il est possible de marcher entre les sillons sans abimer les plantes.

Dans le champ voisin qui vient d'être labouré, il y a plein d'oiseaux qui cherchent de la nourriture.

En repartant, nous franchissons le Canal du Nord à Moislains.

30-Apr-2013 -- On our way to the Baie de Somme, we pass very close to the confluence 50N 3N. Very easy to find, there is a place to park the car close to the wind mills less than 100 m from the point.

The site did not change since the last visit in August 2010. The wind mills are still turning, there is wind today and the weather is cold. Cereals were sown in the field (wheat?) and as they all are still small, it is possible to walk between the furrows without damaging the plants.

In a nearby field which has just been ploughed, there are many birds looking for some food.

While leaving the area, we cross the Canal du Nord in Moislains.
