The Cap Sizun Reserve covers a coastal strip of jagged, granite cliffs which are up to 70 metres high. Among the ocean-going sea birds which visit the reserve are Kittiwake and Common Guillemot. Coastal species include European Shag, Lesser Black-backed Gull and Great Black-backed Gull. The heathland, coastal grassland and cliffs are the all year round home of other birds including Common Raven, Red-billed Chough and Peregrine Falcon,
It is very easy here to get close to breeding Northern Fulmar, Common Guillemot and Kittiwake without disturbing them.
