The ramblings of the warden of this reserve on the Lizard peninsula in west Cornwall, UK, comprising 205 acres of grassland, heathland, arable fields, willow scrub and ponds. It is jointly owned by Cornwall Bird-Watching and Preservation Society and Cornwall Wildlife Trust. Interspersed with the latest news and sightings you will find my retrospective blog outlining the development of the reserve. Please note this is a personal, unofficial account and is not necessarily endorsed by the owners.
After 11 years as voluntary warden of the reserve, I've decided to stand down and let my natural successor, Dougy Wright, take over. Dougy loves the place as much as I do and I've no doubt it will be in good hands.
