Le Lenn is a good place tot spot migratory birds. You can see different kinds of gulls, terns, herons, cormorants, waders, ducks and geese. To really make the most of birding here a spotting scope is a good idea. Among the birds you can expect are Brent Goose, Ruddy Turnstone, Little Grebe, Herring Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Mediterranean Gull, Great Cormorant, European Shag, Common Redshank, Common Greenshank, Eurasian Curlew and Little Egret. The best is to advance to the end of the peninsula, but you can also observe bird from the edge of the coastal road.


Français: L'endroit est protégé du vent et la nourriture y est abondante. L’hiver est la meilleure période pour leur observation. On peut observer à l’oeil nu : le héron, l’aigrette garzette, le cormoran, la bernache cravant, les goélands argentés, le goéland marin. On observe les autres avec une paire de jumelles ou une longue-vue, ce sont les limicoles : les tournepierres, les chevaliers gambettes, les chevaliers aboyeurs, les bécasseaux, grèbes castagneux. C’est plus d’une quinzaine d’espèces que l’on peut observer.
