Wildlife Reports Archive

Jean Lawman is an author and naturalist, who has published papers and worked on natural history projects for academic and conservation bodies. She is an acknowledged expert on the natural history and wildlife of West Cornwall (particularly the area surrounding Lands End) and, given the profusion of wildlife in the vicinity of the watch, Gwennap Head NCI counts itself fortunate to have her as it’s wildlife officer.

Her monthly reports are of great interest (and educational value) to watchkeepers and she has graciously allowed us to publish an archive of them, here, for all to read.
