Hi, my name is Elizabeth Dale and I am a Cornish freelance writer and blogger. I was born on a farm near Falmouth and I can trace my family tree in Cornwall back to 1550. And I am more than a little proud of that heritage.
I spent 9 years travelling the world, visiting more than 50 countries. But when I came home I realised that some of the best stories and most beautiful sunsets are found right on my doorstep, in Cornwall and I wanted to share that with visitors and locals alike. So the Cornish Bird Blog was born!
Part of my aim is to perserve local heritage and our cultural history. To tell Cornwall’s untold stories.
I have a First Class degree in Journalism and Creative Writing and I am now a freelance writer, producing articles for local and national magazines and websites.

I am not a professional historian, all the research is my own and I have formed my own opinions and stories from it – nothing should be taken as 100% fact.
