Les Ecrehous

Les Ecrehous are a group of offshore islets, 6 km to the north east of Jersey. Although isolated by their location, boat trips around them are sometimes available during the summer months. As they are a major breeding site, landing is not recommended during spring and summer.

Cormorants, Shags, Great and Lesser Blackbacked Gulls, Herring Gulls, Common Terns, Oystercatchers and Rock Pipits all regularly breed. The tree mallow vegetation offers good cover to migrant passerines and many of Jersey’s best rarity records come from here.

Getting There

As already mentioned, landing, especially on Maitre Ile, is not recommended during the breeding season, but boat trips around the Islands are sometimes available. Details should be obtained from Jersey Tourism.
