This Week

    Clouded Yellow
    There are pristine Clouded Yellows about at the moment on the Lizard. These buttercup-hued butterflies will either be the offspring of adults that migrated here earlier in the year, or fresh migrants.

    Small Tortoiseshell
    Have you been noticing lots of fresh-looking Small Tortoiseshells recently? This is a butterfly that generally produces two broods, and it's the second-generation adults that are now emerging.

  • Pillwort...

    It seems to be a good year for the rare, small fern Pillwort, which is benefitting from conservation work on the Lizard (see this week's blog post - New Wetlands for Wildlife). Ruan Pool on Windmill Farm is a good place to look out for it.

    Great Skua
    Great Skuas breed far to the north, but keep an eye out for them at sea as they migrate south. This one was spotted off the Lizard coastline.
