The coastal scrub and dune forests in the area are home to a number of interesting forest birds such as purple banded sunbird, green coucal and grey waxbills. The estuary has flocks of resident flamingos as well as migrant waders. The beach has waders and a variety of terns and gulls. After a big storm out at sea unusual sea birds are often blown in and one can see rare sightings of birds such as sooty tern, greater frigate bird and yellow nosed albatross. Mangrove kingfishers are fairly common in the mangroves in the estuary. Crab plovers often flock on the beaches at Linene.
