Garden Birds in Poitou-Charentes


These are photos of birds which I have seen in the garden or within 5 minutes walk of the garden.  Most of the photos were taken in my garden or close by but a few were taken in England. However all the photos were taken by myself, no copies.

We are blessed by having a garden which has some old trees, the neighbours gardens are similarly blessed and then close by there is woodland and farmland.

If you would like to see a closer view of the photos then just click on the photo and then you can get a beter view.

Other birds which we see but have yet to be photographed are Collared Dove,  Crow, Chifchaf, Golden Oriole, Black Kite, and Little Owl. Firecrest,

    Do you know if there are European Orioles in this area?

    • Yes they are quite common and vey difficult to see, despite what seems like bold yellow and black colour. They stay high up in trees often big Oaks. They have a very distinctive call which is very fluid and clear and you had probably best to listen to it on U tube or RSPB web site…. Once you are familiar with the call you will hear them quite often…. Not sure what area you are in I hear them in Vienne along the Charente river often from my garden…. They leave the area fairly soon for the winter (August/Sept).. Good luck

  2. Really glad I found this page. You helped me identify a male and female Redstart. I didn’t have a clue!
    Thank you.
