A couple of good contacts for visitors this season:

Explore In Cornwall run by Steve Crummay will host guided wildlife walks almost any time, any where to suit you. With one of Cornwall's leading naturalists as your guide, Explore in Cornwall will get you away from the crowds and well-worn tourist trails. You will be able to experience the iconic wildlife, ancient landscapes and hidden wonders you won’t find in the usual guide books whilst in the company of one of Cornwall’s leading wildlife experts. Cornwall has some of the best wildlife, landscape, scenery and coast in Britain, recognised by Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, National Nature Reserves and the Special Areas of Conservation.

Call 01736 740234 or 07929 065510

And when you're ready to relax with rod and line then Dave Williams of Drift Reservoir is your man. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Drift is a 65 acre clear water trout fishery 2 miles west of Penzance and just 200 metres from the main A30 to Lands End. Depths vary greatly around the reservoir, a deep area close to the dam contrasts with a shallow wooded area at the opposite end to the dam. Rainbow and Wild Brown trout are stocked monthly with fish averaging between 1 and 3 lbs. For some variation Arctic Char were introduced a few years ago, but these have proved difficult to catch….will you be the first! Current fishery records: 8lb 3oz Rainbow, 9lb 11oz wild Brown.

Happy days!

Went to the start of the Electric Car Rally in Truro this morning. The rally started from Lemon Quay and routed via the King Harry Ferry and on through the Roseland Peninsula to finish at The Cornwall Hotel and Spa in St Austell.


Great vehicles and rapid charging is the future! Thanks to Cornwall companies eco-drive and Hawkins Motors for the event.
