Mediterranean Gulls are often noted among flocks of Blackheaded and Common Gulls, plus Guillemot and Great Crested Grebe on the sea and coasting hirundines. The concrete breakwater often attracts Turnstone, Wheatear and also Rock Pipit.

Scan the cliffs for Peregrine, Kestrel, Raven and a chance of Black Redstart and Ring Ouzel is possible.
3 The small ponds can attract waders, typically Common and Green Sandpipers, Redshank, Lapwing and Snipe, plus Grey Wagtail, Moorhen, Water Rail, common wildfowl, Grey Heron and Little Egret. Open grassland harbours migrating Sky Lark, Meadow Pipit, Wheatear, Yellow Wagtail and Linnet.
