Dordogne Wildlife Diary

  • Hoopoes

    There seems to have been rather a lot of Hoopoes around recently - I guess with all the young leaving nests and before migrating south. On the first three days of the recent Travelling Naturalist wildlife holiday we saw at least one each day including this one in Saint Marcel du Périgord.

Welcome to my Dordogne Wildlife Diary

In it you will find regular wildlife sightings in the département of Dordogne, notably of birds and butterflies in southern Dordogne where I live. In adddition there will be occasional references to neighbouring départements 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.
