What Happens in and around Preuilly in February?

After 7 days of posts about Australia, we return to France.

Hunting: The main hunting season finishes at sunset on 28 February.

Crane migration: Last year the cranes were particularly spectacular. Pierre Mairé of Pixaile, based nearby in Naintré, took some fabulous aerial photos of their spring migration up from Spain through France when they were in and over the Brenne - click here for the first image, and click the 'next' arrow for two more images. There is another batch starting here.

Foire au safran: The annual foire au safran is on Saturday 19 February in the gymnase (note the new venue), Preuilly sur Claise.
