The Bay of Mont Saint Michel

Patrimoine naturel,

LE MONT-SAINT-MICHEL

Not only is Mont Saint-Michel justly famous for its architectural and cultural heritage, the surrounding bay also enjoys an extraordinary biodiversity. The vast mud-flats and salt-marshes are home to a great number of birds such as the avocet, an elegant wader that feeds on small invertebrates, and the osprey, a rare fish-eating bird of prey. In springtime, the small parsley frog sings its surprising song that resembles a creaking door.
