Mouth of the River Fowey in fog with St. Catherine's Point to the left
and St. Saviour's Point to the right (Simon Colenutt)
The habitat along this stretch of coast consists of open improved grassland fields, coastal scrub and narrow coombes which look ideal for migrants. The best of these was Coombe Haven which while relatively bird-less certainly looked to have potential for picking up incoming migrants.
Coombe Haven (Simon Colenutt)
There were many spring flowers in Coombe Haven including numerous Primrose and my first Opposite-leaved Golden-saxifrage of the spring. This is a classic plant of wet ground and flushes in woodlands and is one of my favourite spring species.
