Environmental Science Field Trip! (22nd October)

A rather enjoyable combined Geography and Environmental Science field trip to Geevor Mine, near Pendeen, educated us all a lot in terms of the social way of life minors and their relatives lived as well as a study into the physical landscape.  However, the fact we were down a mine with no natural daylight did limit the species list for the day.  I managed to reach 18, with a Black Redstart Phoenicurus ochruros fly-catching from the mine-shaft being the highlight for the day!

possibly the worst record shot, I'll stop trying to come up with excuses
