  • Asp Viper

    This is the southern counterpart of the Common Adder in the UK. They are never easy to see (as this photo proves). However carefully checking sunny banks (especially with old metal buckets!) at this time of year, especially in the morning can sometimes be successful. It is the only poisonous species of seven found in Dordogne. This was a very attractive individual with a bit of a look of a rattlesnake about it.

Welcome to my Dordogne Wildlife Diary

In it you will find regular wildlife sightings in the d├ępartement of Dordogne, notably of birds and butterflies in southern Dordogne where I live. In adddition there will be occasional references to neighbouring d├ępartements such as Lot et Garonne, Gironde, the Lot and places further afield. Check out the Faune-Aquitaine website for the latest wildlife sightings in Dordogne and Aquitaine.

Where possible I will add photographs to illustrate the entry. Many thanks to Margaret Mills (family photo) and Denis Cauchoix (birdwatcher photo).

I hope that you enjoy my diary and look forward to your comments.
