The Dordogne area in south-west France has a remarkable range of wild landscapes. The beautiful rivers include tidal sections, marshes, cliffs and upland tributary streams set amongst limestone-dominated hills. Elsewhere diverse woodlands, hay meadows, caves, heathlands, arable plateaux plus ancient vineyards and villages also offer visitors great wildlife experiences in what has been called ‘the cradle of pre-history’.
The Crossbill Guide to Dordogne, France consists of 21 routes and numerous other sites to discover this wonderful region. The book is complemented with extensive chapters on landscape, geology, history, descriptions of the flora and fauna and tips to observe wildlife.
"[...] Everything you need to turn up in the right place and at the right time to find some of the best wildlife in Europe. You might get Lost in France with Bonnie Tyler but not if you have this superb book in your backpack."
