Wildlife in Cornwall
High on the long list of what makes Cornwall such a wonderful place is its abundant and varied wildlife.
"Wildlife in Cornwall" has been created to help people discover the best locations in Cornwall to see birds and wildlife. It has been created so locals and visitors can explore the wonderful wildlife of this beautiful part of the world.
I have produced hundreds of wildlife videos showing off the rare birds and the not so rare birds, plus I have created location guides showing the Wildlife Hotspots and the spectacular places to visit in Beautiful Cornwall.
Cornwall is one of the finest counties in the UK for spotting migrant and unusual birds such as Hoopoes and Wrynecks, it is also one of the best counties for seeing
Basking Sharks are becoming increasingly common, so are Bottlenose and Risso's Dolphins as well as the occasional Minke Whale.
Winter is also an excellent time to go go birdwatching in Cornwall, especially when severe weather conditions up-country forces huge numbers of waders and thrushes southwest in search of milder conditions.
In addition to the wealth of rare and migrant birds which can be seen, Cornwall has a very healthy resident bird population. Tehidy Woods near Camborne is a wonderful place to get very close to birds such as Robins, Great Tits and Blue Tits.

Cornish Engine Houses
Standing like beacons on the horizon. Cornish Engine Houses are reminders of bygone days when cornishmen led the world in mining expertise. Over 3000 Engine Houses were built in Cornwall and West Devon of which only about 200 remain.
I have recently added many pages to "Wildlife in Cornwall" to give an insight in to the Engine Houses and the proud history of cornish mining.
