Martin's Haven & Wooltack Point

Lovely views of two porpoises in the very calm water off the Point this weekend. Easily spottable under the circling Gannets, at one stage one porpoise came within 30m of the point itself.

In the valley near Lockley Lodge it was a great weekend for Slowworms, with up to 4 found underneath several carefully distributed roof slates. Several of the Slowworms were astonishingly large (broader than my thumb!): presumably pregnant females.
Also out first Palmate Newt sighting of the year, and two Common Lizards.
