The Loire valley lies right in the heart of France. The grand river Loire flows right through the centre of the region and it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site owing to its high concentration of stunning castles and stately homes. Perhaps less known is the fact that this region also supports a mouth-watering flora and fauna.
Two major natural areas within the region are the Brenne and the Sologne both of which sport hundreds of marsh-fringed lakes. These lakes together form some of France's finest wetlands, with large populations of Purple and Night Herons, Little Bitterns, Whiskered Terns, Black-necked Grebes and much more.
But the avian interest extends far beyond the wetlands. The landscape is a patchwork of forests, heathlands, streams, unimproved, hedge-lined meadows and fields, where birdwatchers can meet with an extraordinary assemblage of birds. What goes for the avifauna holds true for the reptiles and amphibians, the flora and butterflies. The Loire and its tributaries is one of Europe's finest areas for dragonflies. This guide highlights the most beautiful nature reserves and aids the reader in finding the most interesting, birds, plants, butterflies and dragonflies in the area.
