Hi Friends – Our first film shows our beautiful land of Cornwall – a beach a few miles from Penzance. This website was created to save a small beach on the seafront of Penzance. At our Battery Rocks beach area, you may be lucky and sea seals like these just a few feet from the shore, that is, if you actually GO to the place and reestablish your connection with Mother Nature.
Purple Sandpipers have been using Battery Rocks as a nesting site since time immemorial. It is one of a relatively small number of such roosts in the West of Britain. Their presence attracts Human visitors, namely birdwatchers, who also contribute to the economy of Penzance.
