The St. Samson reserve, acquired by the Fédération des Chasseurs du Calvados in 1983, allows many waterbirds to stop over during their migration or to remain in winter.

It is a good place to observe the abundant waterbirds from December to March-April. The Federation offers free nature activities lasting 2h30 on the discovery of this reserve and birds, from November 1st to March 31st.
