Dordogne Wildlife Diary

  • Wild Cyclamen

    From late summer until late into the autumn, Wild Cyclamen flower in many shady spots around Dorodgne including wild forest sites and mature gardens. At Beynac Castle there is a fine display in a garden by the eastern viewpoint. I was pleased to find a small colony in the garden (under a mature cypress tree) at our new house near Maurens. At our previous house in Mauzac there were a few plants in the woodland below the meadow adjacent to a spring.

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.
