Monday 23rd July Pendeen & Kenidjack

Another wonderful day of sunshine and little wind today. First thing: this morning I wandered down to the lighthouse to check out the local patch. Two Chough soon made their presence known with their constant calling - I've not see Chough along this stretch of the coast before. Apart from that it was the usual stuff but it was just so lovely to be out in such nice weather.

The two Chough - from the photo you can see that they're ringed but I can't read them

This afternoon we went for a stroll en famille down the Kenidjack valley and over to Cape Cornwall and back. As expected there was little of note but we all enjoyed ice creams at the kiosk at Cape Cornwall and I found a nice Beautiful Demoiselle by the stream by the green engine shed on the way back.

In the evening we went for a stroll down to the lighthouse again where I managed to spot a Basking Shark cruising around by the Wra which I pointed out to the rest of the family. There were also a few manxies going through but little else.

Finally we finished off with some more Active Mothing. Below are some of the highlights.
