Here we will showcase the most recent wildlife photos, taken here at Heligan by our Wildlife Team. Whether its an unusual bird sighting, a beautiful sunrise, the first Marsh Orchid, or our team erecting bird boxes you will be able to view our photographic archive of the goings on from around the Heligan estate.
After a torrential downpour this male Blackbird was desperately feeding its newly fledged offspring.
Red-headed Cardinal Beetle (Pyrochroa serraticornis)
This beetle can often be seen feeding on flowers from May to July.
There are lots of young animals around at this time of year. Young Rabbits are often seen from Horsemoor Hide.
Leptopterna dolabrata nymph
This is the time of year when lots of insect nymphs start to emerge. These are otherwise known as Meadow Plant Bugs.
Figwort Weevil - Cionus alauda
This Weevil; which is no longer than 3mm, was found in the Lost Valley.
Who built this nest?
This neatly constructed nest was found on the floor under a pine in Heligans car park. Any suggestions as to who the builder is?
A pair of Red-legged Partridge have been seen regularly near the Steward's House.
Juvenile Grass Snake
This Grass Snake was found in the Jungle. It was around 150mm long so it is most probably one of last years young.
