Although perhaps not quite as exotic as Spain or Portugal, France has a lot to offer to the travelling birder. Its central position in Western Europe means that there is a wide variety of habitats including the Guarrigues and Maquis of the Mediterranean coast. A mature oak forest of central and eastern France attracts so many wonderful species. As Birding is still a connoisseur hobby in France, there are plenty of opportunities to find many birds yourself. But if you want to find the best species in the less well-known parts, let us take you on a superb bird watching tour with an English speaking guide.


We cover practically the whole of France and offer bird watching guided tours in areas such as the Aquitaine/Dordogne, Brittany, Burgundy, Loire Valley, Languedoc-Roussillon, Limousin, Charente Maritime & Poitou Charentes and the Midi-Pyrenees to name but a few.


France has the most forestation in Europe so you are never more that 50km from a decent sized Forest which, depending of the area, will hold Middle spotted, Grey-headed or Black Woodpecker and similar other types of birds. Birds of prey are common; on a drive across France over 10 species can be seen in a day from the motorway!

We look forward to booking you on that perfect bird watching holiday!
