Bird Watching
While this boat trip did not specialise in spotting birds we did see quite a lot and it give us a fascinating trip through the Cotentin landscape. Our French is not good but we were provided with information in English. It is our own fault that we could not get more out of the trip our, guide, driver was quite raconteur and a fount of information and kept all amused for the whole trip.
