Thinking of going rock pooling in Cornwall? You’ve come to the right place.
My Cornish Rock Pools blog is the winner of the 2017 BBC Wildlife Magazine Blog of the Year Award!
Now out in paperback with this beautiful new cover!
There’s something about rock pooling. It’s a window on the underwater world. It’s the freedom of wandering between the blue sky and sparkling sea, never knowing what you will find. It’s a joy every child should experience, and that every adult should rediscover.

Found in the rock pools this week…
Rockpooling has been one of the few activities I have been fortunate enough to enjoy all through 2020. I haven’t been able to invite others along in the usual way, but sharing some of my finds here and through my writing has allowed me to bring the rockpools to more people and to make new connections in these difficult times . There is precious little to celebrate about the year behind us and as a proud European, I am grieving for what we will lose tonight, but the beauty of nature endures and is always worth fighting for. Now, more than ever, we must find ways to work together to make a difference.
Enjoy some highlights from a year in the rock pools with this week’s blog. Happy New Year to all!
If you are visiting a beach please take care not to disturb wildlife check you haven’t left any litter behind.
I’m delighted that Cornish Rock Pools has twice been named ‘Blogger of the Week’ in 2016 and 2017 by the BBC Wildlife Magazine and has also been named the winner of the 2017 BBC Wildlife Blog of the Year Award.
My first award was for my report on finding and photographing these gorgeous Scarlet and gold cup corals. Read more here.
Please do let me know if you find anything interesting or unusual. Happy rockpooling!
