Porthcothan Bay sunset
Sunset over Porthcothan Bay, with Will's Rock on the right. Taken from the coastal footpath - awash with wildflowers in early June. A leek, most probably, Babington's leek (Allium ampeloprasum var. babingtonii)has colonised here but as yet is only in bud. Babington's leek is a very rare plant nationally, but locally frequent in coastal Cornwall. See information at: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
