Birds, Butterflies & Wildflowers Of The Dordogne

From: £Contact us

France’s Dordogne region is great for birding, butterfly watching and for wildflowers. It is a perfect ‘stepping-stone’ between the UK fauna and flora and those of more exotic regions further south.

Traditional land use has left many wildlife habitats intact, meaning almost any location is of natural history interest. Many birds that are either rare breeders or vagrants in the UK are common here and we'll explore woodland, scrub and fields for species such as crested tit and golden oriole. Around 120 butterfly species have been recorded in the Dordogne, twice the number seen in the United Kingdom, while June is the peak flowering time for many species and the flora is outstanding.
