The far west of Cornwall has a justly famous reputation for its birdwatching.
Place names like Porthgwarra, Cot Valley, Nanquidno and Kenidjack send a shudder through the devoted rarity follower !
The aim of this significant part of the sennen-cove website is to bring you the latest news and information concerning local birdwatching ~ our area site guide is a fascinating `quick look` at many of the local hotspots, while local records are held in text files available to everyone.
Our local reports are updated several times daily - and reports to us will be gratefully received, as will constructive comments towards improving the site !
