Busy weekend

On Saturday morning we had 12 volunteers join us for some invasive, non-native Himalayan balsam removal in Rocky Valley, a beautiful valley near Tintagel. The volunteers who were brave enough, went coasteering with Cornish Rock Tors at Port Quin in the afternoon as a thanks for their hard work.

We work in partnership with Cornish Rock Tors and they kindly provided this coasteering session for free.

On Sunday, ranger Tom led a wildflower walk around the stunning Pentire headland near Polzeath. We had over 20 members of the public join us, soaking up the sunshine and all the wildflower knowledge we could. We noted 83 species of flowering plants and grasses as well as various birds, butterflies and insects including a ruby tailed wasp, a banded sexton beetle, oak eggar moth caterpillar and small eggar moth caterpillars. We also saw a fox out in the bright sunshine, but most awesome of all – a pod of dolphins!
