Parc du Sausset is a very good place to bird for a few hours if you are stuck in Paris! It is home to a few heritage species: Great Bittern (winter), Little Bittern (breeder), Snipe and Jack Snipe (winter), Black Woodpecker and Little Ringed Plover (breeder), Bluethroat and European Honey-buzzard (migration). The park is also a good place for entomologists and botanists.
