Locations - St Catherine’s & La Coupe

St Catherine’s & La Coupe

When it comes to seawatching, St Catherine’s and La Coupe on the north east corner are among the best. Good views can be had from the end of St Catherine’s Breakwater ( pictured here at dawn from La Coupe) or, for the less athletic, from La Coupe to the north.

August to December are the best months with good passages of terns, then gulls, divers, grebes, ducks and auks. Little Gulls are sometimes counted in hundreds as are Razorbills and diver passage can exceed 100 on a good day in November and December. Passerine migration can also be good here, especially winter thrushes and finches, in October. Look for rarities in the bushes at La Coupe.

Getting There

St Catherine’s lies on the north east point of the Island. Park at the foot of the breakwater and walk to the end ( Snow Buntings are often seen here in October ).

Perry’s Guide 34C1.

For La Coupe, head south from St Catherine’s, turn right into Le Mont des Ormes, right again into La Rue du Villot. Continue north past La Haie Fleurie then straight ahead at the left bend into La Poudretterie and right once more into La Rue de la Coupe. View from the little car park at the very end.
