With the unsettled weather, May has been quiet this year on the migrant-front. Hayle Estuary has had quite a purple patch with the April Bonaparte’s Gull lingering until 21st May and an American Golden Plover from 1st -7th. A Temminck’s Stint drew a crowd at Ryan’s Field on 14th but had gone the next day.
With news of the proposed move of the Penzance heliport to a field close to the estuary, we have been busy looking at the detail and with no Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) planned by BIH and plans to fly over the valley from Hayle to Marazion Marsh we have objected on both accounts. Watch this space.
