Finding Birds in Mid France

Dave Gosney

This is the book for any birdwatcher who wants to visit any of the key birding areas of central France including the 'Champagne' lakes, La Brenne, Les Dombes, the Lorraine National Park, the Jura mountains and Les Vosges. Based on observations in 2018 and 2019 it gives a more realistic idea of which species can still be found in these areas. It includes specific details of where to find species such as White-tailed Eagle, Collared Flycatcher, Little Bittern, Short-toed Eagle, Citril Finch, Black Woodpecker etc.

Unique features, compared to other publications covering the same area, this one:

  • Provides the most useful maps - so you can easily find your way to the best bits of wetland, steppe or woodland.
  • Includes GPS co-ordinates to help you find the right turnings, parking spaces or viewing points.
  • Highlights the best areas only - and summarises the key attraction in the first paragraph so you can easily decide whether to read on or bother to visit the site.
  • Has a map on the inside cover which serves as an index so you can easily find any site in the book.
  • Is light and portable (and cheap).
  • Is supplemented by the site pages on the Easybirder website (which include photos of many of the locations).
  • Is updated in the free update pages on the Easybirder website, giving details of what other birders have found at these sites.

"When I visited France in 2018 and 2019 I found that many of the sites failed to do 'what it said on the tin'. Many of the birds that were supposed to be there simply weren't. So, if you are visiting any of these sites you really need this up-to-date view on what can still be expected. There are still plenty of great birds to be found including Collared Flycatcher, White-tailed Eagle, Little Bittern, Citril Finch, Black Woodpecker, Rock Bunting, Bee-eater, Short-toed Eagle, Great Bittern and more but you need to know exactly where they are still found."
