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.
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.
Parrot Waxcap - Hygrocybe psittacina
Waxcap's are in decline due to a decrease in unimproved grassland; fortunately here at Heligan they thrive.
