Winter is an exciting time of year for birders. You could search for hen harriers in West Penwith or visit Bartinney Nature Reserve to look for snipes and woodcocks. The beach at Marazion is home to a wide variety of waders and seabirds, while overwintering bitterns have been spotted at Marazion Marsh.
Head to cliffs at Land’s End, and you might spot the distinctive red bill of a Cornish chough, which are growing in numbers thanks to a management project from the RSPB. You can read more about the Cornwall Chough Project here.
It’s also worth checking the Cornwall Birdwatching & Preservation Society (CBPS) boards for the latest sightings in the area.
