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.
As the leaves start to fall this is the perfect time to spot the smaller insectivorous birds, such as this Goldcrest.
Brown Long-Eared Bat
This Brown Long-Eared Bat was found roosting along with two Pipistrelles in a small timber building in the Heligan nursery.
A family of Wood mice have made a nest in our Barn Owl tower. This one proved very inquisitive!
Yellowdrop Milkcap - Lactarius chrysorrheus
Milkcaps are so-called by the fact that they exude a milky fluid if cut or damaged.
Amethyst Deceiver - Laccaria amethystina
Despite its bright lilac colouring this small toadstool is edible and can be found in most broadleaved woodland.
