Oiseaux de Provence

Just back from a superb week in Provence guiding a birding holiday for Shetland Wildlife. An excellent and diverse selection of species included Wallcreeper, Alpine Accentor, Black Woodpecker, Citril Finch, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Little Bustard, Calandra Lark, Dartford & Sardinian Warblers, Bonelli's Eagle, Booted Eagle, Moustached Warbler, Penduline Tit, Black-necked Grebe, Night Heron and the famous Green Heron - back for its third consecutive winter! The trip will run again from 13 - 19 February 2010 and always proves to be very popular - all the details are here

Our visit to Provence attracted the attention of top flight food and travel writer Julie Mautner.
