  • Green-winged Orchid

    The Green-winged orchid is our commonest early flowering orchid and can be found almost anywhere even away from the limestone. It is often mistaken for the Early Purple Orchid as it is early and purple. However the leaves aren't spotted and the upper petals and sepals are lined horizontally in green (this shows best on the scarce white variety). The Green-winged Orchid grows in open grassland whereas the Early Purple is often under trees or on the woodland edge.

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.
