Following on from a previous posting on birds. We have been lucky enough to see some very unusual - to us at least - birds during our 4 years in Creuse. Last year we had several Black Winged Stilts at the bottom end of our lake. We also get regular visits from Egrets, Herons, Bitterns, Common Sandpipers and Hoopoes .
This year we have seen Golden Orioles flitting around. There is also a white Ragondan - Coypu - paddling around!
There has also been a pair of Kites nesting in the woods at the side of the lake, along with several types of Buzzards
We have never seen such a variety of wildlife, loads of mammals - Stone Martins, Roe Deer, even a proper Wild Cat, we seem to see something different almost every week.
Mind you still not seen a Sanglier, and only had one Red Squirrel put in an appearance - despite the nuts put out for them!
