Up the Creek and Beyond!

Plymouth Branch indoor meeting 29th January 2018.

With Rupert Kirkwood aka “The Lone Kayaker”


Rupert at the Eddystone Lighthouse

Rupert’s enthusiasm and determination to navigate the waterways and coasts of the Southwest have afforded him great opportunities to see wildlife up-close and personal.

This was an entertaining and informative presentation given with passion. It revealed the many and varied flora and fauna of our region (and beyond) from the unique perspective of a kayaker.

Stunning and inspirational photographs of birds, sea creatures and landscapes viewed from the sea can be found on Rupert’s blog at thelonekayaker.wordpress.com and, with accompanying commentary, making a visit to this site is highly recommended. We saw many examples of the birdlife that can be seen in Plymouth waters and this presentation certainly whetted our appetite for our forthcoming boat trips on Saturday 14th July. We hope that this will provide us with opportunities to see species such as these photographed by Rupert and shown below.                                                                       John Lloyd
