Introduction to Seawatching at Lizard Point

Sat 5th August
08:00-10:00
Meet at National Trust Lizard Point Wildlife Watch Point, just south of the cafe. Please park at the main NT car park at Southerly Point. Grid ref: SW 703 116
Please bring a seat/sitting mat and telescope recommended. Contact Tony Blunden 01326 291064
Sit down and watch the passing seabirds with an opportunity to discuss identification. With luck we should expect to see a range of seabirds. Although very weather dependent it is a good time to see Manx and Balearic Shearwaters and being the best time of year for potential Sooty, Great and Cory’s Shearwaters. With luck we should also expect to see a range of late summer and early autumn seabirds including Skuas, Gannets, auks and divers. There should also be a range of Gull species on the reef, Black Redstart and Chough on the cliffs. Grey Seals, Harbour Porpoise and Dolphins are also regularly seen. There is always plenty to look at and often surprises.
