The Word Wide Web is increasingly becoming a wonderful medium to help wildlife spotting and for sharing information. Obviously there is nothing quite like getting out there and immersing yourself in the wonderful environment we have on our doorstep, but now there are many ways of discovering more and sharing experiences with like-minded folk. Here is a selection of sites that I have visited recently and enjoyed – some are more active than others – but there are some great pearls of knowledge and some stunning photos. Most listed here are Cornwall focussed – it would be great to hear of any others that people might recommend a look. Happy surfing.

Birds – plenty of enthusiastic bloggers out there and really handy to keep tabs on what you may have seen
