School hill
Polgigga includes Trethewey , and is collectively known as St.Levan .
Birders recognise St.Levan as the area round St.Levan Church ; known locally as Churchtown !

Rural farmland is Polgigga - and rarities often reflect that habitat, with Richard`s Pipits and Ortolan Buntings being typical.
