  • Common Clubtail dragonfly

    This beautiful specimen had just emerged from it's exuva (pupal case) as we posed nearby for an end of holiday photo at Le Barrage Hotel, Mauzac (with Speyside Wildlife guests). The Common Clubtail is a common early season species along the rivers of Dordogne. The pale spots on the end of the heavily clubbed and thick abdomen are characteristic. The yellow soon turns green as the adult matures.

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.
