A quick aerial tour of some of the well known birding spots of west Cornwall. My thanks to John and Shaunne Shaw for supplying the aircraft and getting me back on the ground safely despite my best efforts at flying it,
A view of College Reservoir near Falmouth with the Argal Resevoir dam in the lower left corner. Can you spot the Bittern on the island in the reservoir?
Stithians Reservoir looking north towards Camborne and St. Agnes Beacon. The southern cutoff is at the bottom of the picture and there is one hide on this stretch of water and another just across the road on the main reservoir.
Windmill Farm on the Lizard is jointly owned by the Cornwall Bird Watching and Preservation Society and the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. Looking approximately north Predannack airfield can be seen on the western side. The windmill stump is just right and down from the centre of the picture.
And finally Lizard Village and Lizard Point where the Choughs live.
