Locations - Noirmont Point

Noirmont Point

Noirmont Point is the most southerly headland in Jersey and, as such attracts large numbers of migrants in both spring and, especially, autumn.

Large numbers of finches, pipits, wagtails and thrushes can be seen passing over here and stopping for a final feed before crossing the forty miles of open sea to France.

Among the lesser common birds recorded here in recent years are Honey Buzzard, Osprey, Wryneck, Golden Oriole, Ring Ouzel, Shorelark, Richardís and Tawny Pipit, Ortolan and Lapland Bunting, Barred Warbler, Melodious Warbler and many more. Dartford Warblers commonly breed.

Getting There

Located at the western end of St Aubinís Bay, in the south west of the Island. Going up Le Mont Les Vaux in St Aubin, heading west, turn left onto La Route de Noirmont. Follow this almost to its end, where there is a signpost left to the headland.
Park in the cark park after the pines, on the left, or at the very end, near to the German guns. Good birds may be found anywhere, many passing through without landing.
