LOCAL WILDLIFE
FLORA & FAUNA
With the exception of dozens of Green Woodpeckers and a wide range of European birds of prey and a few resident House Sparrows, there wasn’t really much bird-life to be seen when La Tournerie Ferme first became a caravan site in 2008 as since time immemorial up until then, it would appear that virtually anything else had been shot!

In addition to the bird-life, if you are very lucky and keep your eyes and ears wide open, you might be lucky to see: -

Fox; Hare; Fallow Deer; Roe Deer; Red Deer; Pine Martin; Red Squirrel; Stoat; Weasel; Wild Boar and far, far too many moles for my liking as well as some very invasive rabbits !
There are also a relatively wide range of reptiles, from common lizards that you will be able to see scurrying around on the pitches through to various types of snakes ................. But almost never on site !

With regards to Flora & Fauna, in our immediately surrounding area there are endless miles of forest that have a whole host of different species of lichen covered trees that when combined together, make long meandering, ambling walks through them on the public access tracks, all the more interesting, but it is under foot where you need to keep your eyes as there are a wide range of spellbindingly beautiful orchids to be seen.

Over the years I have found the following passionately written website to be an invaluable reference point for French wildlife and flora: -
