  • Crested Tit

    The Crested Tit is quite a common bird in Dordogne, especially where there are pines. Winter is a good time to see them in mixed species flocks when the leaves are down and birds are more visible. Just listen out for the soft slurred trill with the pitch of a Blue Tit, as you walk through the forest, and this should lead you to one. Our birds in Dordogne are the continental subspecies. The British subspecies, only found in the Scottish Caledonian Pine Forest, is a rather greyer brown with the underparts paler. Despite not being exactly colourful their head-dress is one of the most attractive of the small songbirds. Thanks to John Beaumont for the photo taken locally in Liorac Forest.

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.
