1. On the path of migratory birds
Settle yourself on a rock, binoculars in hands, eyes fixed on the ocean! On the waters off Ouessant, you can observe, from October to April, the impressive flights of the Northern gannet, the razorbills or of the common guillemot. Beside being a prime bird-watching location, the island is also the preferred habitat of many sea birds. In fact, it hosts a couple of northern fulmars! Other species also nest in its coastal cliffs; from the omnipresent Eurasian wren to the more elusive common grasshopper warbler. Near the coast, the short grasslands are the favourite food source of the red-billed chough. Why not meet under the lighthouse in Créac’h on a foggy night. It attracts swarms of passerine birds!
