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 !

"It would be appreciated if bird watchers who visit Porthgwarra respected the land.
We have a "wild garden" for both birds and mammals which this past weekend, because of a rare bird, has been trampled by many selfish feet in order presumably to "tick off" the bird on the list.
Our garden, because of the stream, was home to many small mammals and we fear their habitat has been severely damaged."
