September


Monday 8th and Tuesday 23rd September, Guided Walks on Looe (St George’s) Island Nature Reserve Join the island's wardens for a fascinating walk around the nature reserve. The 31/2 hour trip starts with a boat crossing from Looe to the nature reserve where you’ll be met by the resident wardens. During the walk the wardens will help you spot wildlife such as wonderful grey seals and impressive great-blacked gulls, describe how the island is managed and of course explain how the island was left to Cornwall Wildlife Trust by the amazing Atkins sisters. Afterwards there’ll be an optional slide show inside the charming Jetty Cottage or time to independently explore the island before your boat journey back to the mainland.

Two great wildlife video's, most was filmed in the Looe area

‘Cornwall - The Wild Peninsula’ follows the wildlife of Cornwall throughout the seasons of the year. Most visitors to Cornwall spend their time here visiting the fantastic beaches and tourist attractions, the locals know of another Cornwall - the one where an incredible amount of wildlife lives right here, on our doorsteps. This film is a celebration of those wild treasures. Quite a bit of the film was shot in the Looe area.

Walkaboutwest offer a professional guiding service on Bodmin Moor or across Cornwall. Mark Camp is a fully qualified Blue Badge Tour Guide and is one of only a handful of guides accredited to guide at Cornish Mining World Heritage sites in the county.
For Mark the moors mean open space and an abundance of history. He rarely has a day on the moor when he does not find something new to look at and his quest to document all of the prehistoric sites on the moor has led to him walking to some very distant corners of it.
