Late AM wander around the Park on Sunday..:

30+ Jays in practically every area, all very active. Abnormally large numbers..?

Hi Tony,

Very interested to hear about the marine wildlife on your Cornwall trip - did you spend much time at sea to come across all these basking sharks and so on? I once saw a sunfish in Barcelona aquarium, it would be amazing to see one in the wild!

Cheers,

Piers

Hi Piers.

I hope you are well. All the whales, dolphins and sharks were seen while sitting on the cliffs at Lands End. My friends and I became one of the tourist attractions at this amusement type park. We will feature in quite a few holiday snaps.
