Dave Gosney writes:


‘‘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”
