Dordogne Wildlife Diary

  • Narrow-leaved Lungwort

    Down here in southern Dordogne we don't have the amazing Bluebell woods of England but we try to make up for that with other things like the range of orchids etc. However the early spring here with Primroses, Cowslips and Lady's Smock always remind me of UK and it's nice to see a bit of blue colour from this pretty flower: Narrow-leaved Lungwort (rare in UK) currently blooming in the leafless woods hereabouts. In late February last year I posted a photo of the broader leaved Common Lungwort taken in the Pyrenees, which is a common species in UK.

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.
