Sea birds of the Chausey Islands


Sea birds share space and time in the peace of the islets. Chausey counts one of the most significant colonies of cormorants in France. The colony of crested cormorants accounts for even 1% of the world population of this species. On the main island, we can see the duck tadorne, rarer and protected, which nest in burrows. The whole archipelago is a hunting reservation and landing on the islets of the west is prohibited during the birds reproduction season.

In agreement with the SCI of the Chausey Islands, the Norman Ornithological Group ensures scientific management and monitoring of the archipelago from March at the end of July. Within this framework, this association organizes animations of discovery.
