Falmouth Patch (20th May)

Falmouth Cemetery:

Goldcrests, Red Admiral and a couple Speckled Woods.

Seawatching from Swanpool Point:

The odd Gannet in rather calm sea conditions.

Falmouth Bay:

2 Great Northern Divers were a treat to watch in their full summer breeding plumage but I spent most of my time gazing onto rockpools where I photographed Common Blenny, Common Sea Slater and Star Ascidian.

Common Sea Slater, Ligia oceanica

Star Ascidian, Botryllus schlosseri

Common Blenny

Seawatching from Pendennis Point all west late afternoon until 21:15:

63 Manx Shearwaters, a couple Fulmar, 1 sum plum Great Northern Diver off the point. 1 bat species on my walk back from the point.


  1. That's quite a bit of catching up you've done there.

  2. Yep :) Pretty much just copied and pasted what I'd written on the Bird Forum Falmouth thread so it wasn't too much work :P

  3. Samuel, in my mind you are down in Falmouth studying and I completely forget to look at your bird blog. But if I do remember to check out your blog I realise why you are truly down in Cornwall.
