Bird Watching

A haven for wild life, it’s hardly surprising at the wide variety of species of birds that can be seen in Normandy. You can find a host of birds from housemartins and hoopoes, jays, yellow hammers, wrens and songthrushes. Woodpeckers and some partridges have been know to put in a regular appearance. It’s also possible to hear cuckoos and owls and screech owls at night as well as bats.
