The Natural History of the River Camel, "Source to Sea".

This talk follows the River Camel from its source near Bodmin Moor in North Cornwall across the moors and down through the wooded valleys to the lower reaches just above the spring tides.

From there the river slows and broadens until downstream of Wadebridge where it becomes the Camel estuary and then runs out into the North Atlantic.

My photographs look at the flora & fauna along the route and indeed the landscapes that make the route.

From Harriers, pipits and chats on the moor to owls, woodpeckers and deer in the woods. Ducks, swans and waders on the estuary giving way to seabirds, seals and dolphins as the estuary becomes the ocean.

This talk can be done in an hour but is much better if done in 2 parts with part 1 at 3/4 an hour with a break and then part 2 in1/2 hour.
