Birding in Hayle

Ten of us assembled at the car park beside Hayle Swimming Pool – David Chapman, our guide, then took us along St. George’s Walk . What a variety of birds we saw as we ambled along the waterside!  There were as many in the bushes as on the pool flats (the tide being out).   Some of the group had very sharp eyes and several unusual birds were noted – the kingfisher being one.       After a couple of hours besides Copperhouse Pool we then ventured across to the Hide behind the Causeway. After a short stop for a refreshment break, David took everyone across the road to view the birds just off the Causeway into Hayle.     David is so informative he makes it a very enjoyable experience, it’s as if the birds come out to sing for him – cannot recommend enough this bird watching experience.
