France (Bourgogne), 31 July - 4 August 2013


Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites


Since we visited Paris in 2011, my father-in-law wanted to visited the home area of the race of sheep
he liked most at the L'Agriculture: the 'Mouton Charollais', which originates in the Bourgogne area in the eastern part of France.
This happened a year after in 2012. We visited a few farmers that year, but he was unable to buy him a ram.
So, when he found out that at August 2nd, 2013 a Concours was held in Palinges (also Bourgogne),
he suggested that we should go back to France once more. And so we did!
From July 31 untill August 4, 2013 we stayed at a campsite near Palinges, visited the Concours on friday,
and tried to do some dragonfly-watching in the area.

A (Dutch) trip report can be downloaded through here.
