Carne Hill. (Out of Bounds)

Report sent by. John Rance 25th June 2010.

FYI, at Carne Hill last night,

At least 3 Nightjar, 2 churring and another hunting, 1 Yellowhammer, several Tree Pipits , 1 male Cuckoo, 1 male Stonechat, Buzzard, Kestrel, and an Adder.

Thanks for the report John..

Even though it is *out of bounds* I feel it is close enough and of sufficient interest to be included on the Blog.
The Tree Pipit would be a Life Tick for me ...


  1. Great stuff .. Where abouts in Carne Hill Trevor?

  2. Hi Mark.

    I have never been there myself so I cannot give you explicit directions. What I do know is that it is in St Dennis. Hope this helps.

  3. No it was at the 'other' Carne Hill, near Trewoon,
    its a cracking bit of restored heathland, along the lines of carloggas:


  4. FYI, the Nightjars are in the area marked on the pink OS map as Burngullow Common, SW 985 540

  5. O dear. Sorry Mark.
    We decided to have a look this evening around St Dennis and naturally we did not find it and ended up at Goss Moor near Roche.

    Thanks John for clearing up the location of the site and giving us the map reference.

  6. Sorry for the wasted trip chaps- I had no idea there were two Carne Hills! :(
