Cornwall is home to many spectacular birdwatching locations, including Hayle Estuary and Marazion Marsh.
Hayle Estuary is home to many different birds throughout the season, including the curlew, little egret, oystercatcher, teal, and wigeon.
"During spring and autumn, it is an ideal place to see migrant wading birds, gulls and terns. In summer, if you are lucky, you may catch sight of an osprey. The reserve is good for walking, with pushchair-friendly paths."
"The estuary at Hayle is the most westerly in the County and is renowned nationally as a great birding area, turning up many rarities in the past […] The estuary can offer something to anyone at anytime of year, any time of day. Two hours before and two hours after high tide are proven to be best for waders."
