Signs of Spring in Cornwall

with No Comments
Flowering Blackthorn, active overwintered butterflies and migrant birds such as House Martins and Wheatear have all been recorded in the last few days.

And if this wasn’t a sign Spring is here then basking Adders certainly are! For me they are also a reminder to wear heavy boots when sweeping for caterpillars.

This female was one of two stumbled across at Poldhu Cove on the Lizard. My wife took the photo – her request for me to remove the offending grass stem being declined!
