PLEASE NOTE A CHANGE OF PLANS

DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL IT IS NECESSARY TO CHANGE THE ARRANGEMENTS. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO GET TO RAF PREDANNACK UNTIL 1PM, THEREFORE WE WILL GO TO EITHER WINDMILL FARM WHICH IS VERY CLOSE TO TAKE SOME LANDSCAPE AND NATURE SHOTS OR TO POLTESCO/CADGWITH FOR SEASCAPES IN THE MORNING THEN TO RAF PREDANNACK IN THE AFTERNOON.

PLEASE STILL MEET AS ARRANGED AT THE MAIN GATE TO RAF PREDANNACK AT 10AM FROM WHERE WE WILL TRAVEL TO WINDMILL FARM AND BE BACK AT PREDANNACK BY 12.45PM FOR THE AFTERNOON.

WINDMILL FARM IS A CORNISH WILDLIFE TRUST AREA.

THERE ARE NO FACILITIES AT WINDMILL FARM SO PLEASE STILL BRING A PACKED LUNCH.

IF ANYONE DOES NOT WISH TO DO THE MORNING PLEASE ADVISE VIVIEN HOWSE BY EMAIL IN ORDER THAT WE DO NOT WAIT FOR SOMEBODY WHO IS NOT COMING. IF THE AFTERNOON ARRANGEMENT DOES NOT SUIT YOU PLEASE ALSO EMAIL VIVIEN HOWSE TO ADVISE HER.

Photograph old aircraft hulks and associated paraphernalia in the morning, followed by landscape and natural history on the cliffs in the afternoon.

Bring a packed lunch and suitable footwear and clothing.  Walk will be led by Matt Birchett CPO, RNAS Culdrose, who is a very keen Natural History photographer and volunteer for Natural England.
