The photos taken in this gallery (Image Gallery Lizard Ponies) was taken on a walk from the Lizard lighthouse along the coast path towards Housel Bay. The coast path is maintained by the National Trust and there is an excellent car park.
This area saw the return of Cornish Choughs and in order to maintain the ideal habitat The Nation Trust introduced a small herd of this hardy breed these, along with the cattle form the National Trust farms help to maintain the rich flora and fauna of the coastal slopes, which make an ideal habitat for feeding choughs.

You can also visit the Lighthouse. There are two cafes below the car park on the coastal path. If you walk in the other direction it will take you to Kynance Cove and another cafe with a spectacular beach at low tide. You will often spot seals on this part of the coast.
