FALMOUTH HARBOUR AND MARITIME MUSEUM
WEATHER: attrocious, heavy rain and windy conditions until 4pm.
Yes you guessed it....the rain was lashing against our bedroom window once again, but this time it was relentless. Despite the very windy conditions I saw a Black Redstart just outside the hotel as I walked to the breakfast room next door, amazing! There are so many Black Redstarts in Cornwall at the moment and throughout the country, I must have seen around 10 during this trip.
We spent most the day driving back and forth to Falmouth as we visited the Maritime Museum which was great except that a rainy Saturday in November meant that it was packed. Children can enter for free and thousands of them did so!
We got back to the hotel at 4pm. it was a miserable last day for our week in Cornwall, but afterall, it is November what did we expect it to be like?
SUNDAY 6TH NOVEMBER
TRANSFER FROM CORNWALL TO SOMERSET
WEATHER; raining with some sunny spells later (after we got home).
It was raining once again when we got up this morning, we quickly had breakfast, said goodbye to Rachel and Ian and set off for Somerset. I had intended to stop off at Devoran Lakes to look for a Ring-necked Duck but it was still raining as we drove past the area and I decided not to stop.
The trip ended at 1pm as we got back to our cosy little flat the garden was covered in leaves and I know who is going to rake those up tomorrow!!
