Porthgwarra is located on the South Coast of Cornwall, about 2 miles East of Lands End.
Located above the hamlet and small cove is Gwennap Head probably the best seawatching location in Cornwall, it is from here through mid Summer to the end of Autumn the Southwest seawatch group do a census of passing seabirds,and this has turned up a few rarities over the past years. It is also a very good area for Butterflies and insects which can be found over the heathland. Walking and cliff climbing are also very popular pastimes during the Summer months. I hope the few images below which were taken over the last week, convey the feeling of the area which is well worth a visit.
