2014 Wildlife Holiday to La Brenne in central France

Friday May 30th – Saturday June 7th – our group consisted of 10 wonderful people accompanied by leaders Nigel Spring and Kathy Henderson. This was the first time that we had organised a wildlife holiday through EuCAN (as opposed to the training and practical conservation visits that we have been involved in since 2007) and overall it was a most successful and enjoyable week.
