La Citerne à eau de Sainte-Ouenne

This 300 m2 site listed by the CREN is located in the Deux-Sèvres region, north of the town of Niort. It is limited to a plot OB138 surrounded by a house to the north, the RD 12 to the west, a meadow 'des ovins' to the south and the communal football field to the east. It is the smallest man-made Natura 2000 site and is home to a large number of bats throughout the year. During the birthing period, the mixed colony of Great Rhinolophes and Cut-eared Murins, i.e. more than 700 adults, is the 2nd most important site in the Deux-Sèvres in terms of parturition colonies. This colony is part of a network of colonies spread over the Bocage Gâtinais and Bressuirais which accumulates more than half of the breeding stock of the two species of Poitou-Charentes. In hibernation, the trend is reversed: between 50 and 100 Great Rhinolophes.
