A day on Looe Island, Cornwall.

 We spent a day as guests on Looe Island off of South east Cornwall on Tuesday. The weather was showery with a cold North West wind but it was still a fantastic place to be.

Our aim was to count seals as part of our monthly programme but we also counted birds and insects as well.

Anyone wishing to go to Looe island then checkout the Cornwall Wildlife Trust website for details.

Here are a few of my images from the day.
