Dordogne Wildlife Diary

  • House Sale and new book

    After two years on the market, our property at Cabant appears to be finally sold. We are moving near to Bergerac for school and work reasons. We will be in rented accomodation from December whilst we search for a suitable replacement for Cabant. We hope to find a property ideally just east of Bergerac with a house and (smaller) gite and some semi-wild terrain. It's hard to move from such a beautiful place as Cabant especially after all the time, effort, money...and love we put into restoring the place - with much help from family and friends. However another adventure beckons now...and at least we know that Cabant should still be standing in another couple of hundred years time (which will double its age).

    I will continue wildlife guiding locally for private individuals and groups plus Travelling Naturalist and Holiday Property Bond at Constant.

    My Crossbill Wildlife Guide to Dordogne (with Frank Jouandoudet) should be in the bookshops by next summer.

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.
