Nature

BIRDWATCHING 1

Cornwall’s nature reserves, such as Windmill Farm, on The Lizard, are popular with twitchers year-round. The coast draws birds such as the razorbill, guillemot, gannet, cormorant and several types of seagull. Inland, you may see birds of prey, such as sparrowhawks, kestrels and buzzards. Come winter, resident and migratory birds congregate around estuaries and rivers (cbwps.org.uk).

DOLPHINS 2

The southwest coast gets myriad visitors, including porpoises and dolphins, and there’s a resident pod of 10 bottlenose dolphins in the sheltered inshore waters. You might fnd dolphins following you if you take a boat trip with Padstow Sealife Safaris. Alternatively, the best places for land-based sightings are Land’s End, Cape Cornwall and West Penwith (padstowsealifesafaris. co.uk; two-hour boat trip £39).
