La Roche Sèche at low tide (see link to tide table below) welcomes Sanderling, Black-headed Gull, and Herring Gull. It is also home to Kentish Plover that breeds here and returns every year. Brent Goose, Great Cormorant and Sandwich Tern can be spotted near the beach, on the water or flying by. And there are also the dunes, which are home to European Stonechat, Skylark and Rock Pipit. Note that in summer, people come to swim in the area.
