  • White Asphodel

    White Asphodel is a striking tall robust and beautiful flower with a thick stem and strappy leaves, emanating from tuber-like roots. Flowering early (in April and early May) they are missed by many summer tourists here which is a shame. The species is normally found in the mountains of central Europe but here grow in the lowlands on sandy soil. Sometimes they appear amongst limestone flora where a narrow sandy seam occurs, making their appearance even more dramatic and unexpected.

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.
