Cornish Capers (Part 5) - Chough & pasties

One for the collection
All set for journey back
Shadow shot

Bar the returning journey on the pelagic sailing & the following morning we were really blessed with some fantastic weather throughout our three days in Cornwall. With the weather looking glorious we visited at Botallack. Botallack was once a busy industrial landscape but now entertains tourists as part of the Cornish Mining World heritage site and was also featured in Poldark.

Botallack is home to breeding Chough who made us wait a short while for an appearance. Their arrival was dramatic as always, flying in high over us from the north before diving deep into a cliff top crevice. 

We headed back to the M5 and our homeward bound journey to the Midlands. Three superb days, great company and fantastic birds.
