St Ives Head – Photo by charlielisa

St Ives Head is a beautiful grassy headland surrounded by a rugged shoreline and beautiful ocean views. As a bonus this area is a stopping-off point for migratory birds, making it one of the best autumn sea bird watching sites in Europe. Rare and unusual species that have been sighted include Grey Phalarope, Black Tern, Sabine’s Gull, Balearic Shearwater, Arctic Skua, Great Skua and Yelkouan Skua. Resident birds include Manx Shearwater, Gannet, Razorbill, Guillemot and the occasional Puffin. The rocks are home to Rock Pipits, Wheatears live in the short grass and Buzzards and Kestrels can often be seen wheeling overhead. (Saint Ives, England)
