It's a good place to see buntings, like Cirl Bunting or Black-headed Bunting. Other birds who like open countryside can also be found. In spring you can see breeding Subalpine Warbler and Corn Bunting. There are also Golden Oriole and different shrikes, like Red-backed Shrike, Woodchat Shrike and Great Grey Shrike in the area.

On the dump there are gulls and Common Raven.



You can get there by car or bike and take a walk on the dirt roads.
