Dordogne Wildlife Diary

  • not what we want to see...

    I was up birding at Faux Plateau recently and found this for sale sign up for half a hectare of prime limestone grassland and scrub full of special fauna and flora including Nightingale, Whitethroat, Corn Bunting, Stonechat, Melodious Warbler, Linnet, Fan-tailed Warbler, Italian Gladiolus and various orchids etc. Strange that this piece of land should have planning permission for housing.

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.
