A day in the Somme Bay

In summer it’s a good idea to come to the Parc du Marquenterre in the morning or when it’s high tide in the estuary as the birds are still in and around their nests. In the afternoon and at low tide they’re more likely to be off hunting for food, so that’s when you can see them around the bay, especially at Saint-Valery-sur-Somme , Cayeux-sur-Mer and Hable d’Ault. The bay is also home to France’s largest colony of Common Seals and some Grey seals – Le Hourdel is a good place to spot them.
