Botallack, made world famous through Graham Winston’s books of Poldark, was the venue for today’s day trip. I heard and saw Choughs or Palores as they are known in Cornish. Very distinctive in their call and awesome red beaks and legs make them easy to recognise. Fluttering amongst thrifts

Saving nature.

In several areas around the boating lake of Wherrytown there are wild flowers in full bloom. They have been planted to help our decreasing numbers of insects. Quite apart from looking splendidly colourful, they appear to be doing a great job! My mad dog loves catching anything that buzzes in his mouth and shake it dizzy. Does Your dog do that too? Nature would be less plentiful and varied without our insects.
