Cornwall Long Weekend.

Outdoor Events
Last Date:  09:30

Thursday to Sunday 5 to 8 October 2017, Cornwall Long Weekend.

This is a repeat of the very successful trips we have had here in the past. We will again be based in the Penzance/St Ives/Hayle area which will give us easy access to prime bird watching areas such as the Hayle Estuary, Porthgwarra and St Ives Head. We should see a wide variety of birds depending on weather conditions. Sea watching should reveal shearwaters and skuas, whilst the estuaries and marshes should hold good numbers of wildfowl and waders. There are many small valleys in the area which should provide some interesting passerines with always the chance of a rarity.

Members will need to book their own accommodation in the area, and, as with past long weekend trips, we will aim to meet up in the evening to make the most of the trip. As perhaps not everyone will want to come for all four days, we will have some prearranged meeting places for at least the first two days

The leader will be Granville Pictor and if those planning to go could contact him in good time, he will provide details of the meeting places and other details of the trip This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
