Birding potential

This morning we visited Trevose Head, a lonely and barren headland on the North Cornwall coast. It has a reputation amongst birder's as hosting rare birds, a few of which do not get into the public domain. Far be it for me to comment on such things, especially as I'm an emmet down here...

Apart from a few Wheatear and Chiffchaff it was very quiet, but having had a clear, calm and chilly night, that was no surprise. In sunny and warming weather we pootled down the coast back to Porth, stopping at Bedruthan Steps (image below). Although we didn't stop, an area of wetland in the valley running inland from Mawgan Porth looks very promising - one of my (many) faults is getting too enthusiastic about the birding potential in any new area we visit. This whole coast, apart from being beautiful, abounds with interesting habitat. The local birder's are lucky indeed.
