Réserve Naturelle des Sept-Iles, Bretagne, France

On vacation in Brittany, France, I discovered a wonderful two hour cruise to a nature preserve, off of Pleumeur-Bodou.  The cuise visits a set of islands that host breeding puffins and gannets, that this year is celebrating its centenial as a nature preserve.

The puffins had already left for the season, but hundreds of Northern Gannets were still raising young on one of the islands.  Other birds and mammals seen on the trip were European Oystercatchers, Herring Gulls, Gray Seals, European Shags and a single Peregrine Falcon.
