Dordogne Wildlife Diary

  • New Book - Crossbill Guides: Dordogne, France

    I am currently writing a wildlife guide to Dordogne with local French naturalist Frank Jouandoudet. It has become a bit of an opus - the idea for the project was born nearly five years ago! It will be around 225 pages with lots of photos and fact boxes set amongst the main chapters dealing with: landscape, species, routes (to see the wildlife) and advice to visitors. It is due out in spring 2018.

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.
