By October 20, 2015Kayaking News

The colours of the rocks on Koru’s¬†North Coast Kayak Adventure from Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes, with bright orange oxidised iron and bright green oxidised copper are a regular sight along the St Agnes coastline.

But, it is at this time of year the Frenchman’s Creek Kayak Adventure becomes ablaze of colour. All the leaves on the ancient oak forests which line the banks of the Helford River Conservation Area start to turn, some faster than others giving a lovely blaze of orange, russet, bright yellows and greens.

The herons and egrets enjoy basking in the Autumnal sunshine on the ancient oak tree branches, whilst cormorants dip into the Helford River and creeks catching fish. The flashes of colbalt blue darting along the banks are kingfishers flying between branches, who occasionally rest on a branch a display their bright orange breasts.

The oyster farming is still continuing, the rusted orange cages joining in with the Autumnal theme.

But perhaps one of the most amazing sights on our Autumnal Koru Kayak Adventures are the Autumnal sunsets.
