Rosenannon Downs

Rosenannon Downs is a large tract (11 hectares) of heathland of the type that used to cover much of this part of Cornwall. There is also a mire and some woodland that support a wide range of species.

Wildlife highlights:
Small heath, grayling and green hairstreak butterflies can all be seen. There are plenty of skylarks and there have been several sightings of Hen Harriers.

Location and directions: From the A30 near Victoria, take the B3274 towards Padstow. Take the second right turn, then first left towards Rosenannon. Go down the hill through the village on the Wadebridge road. The Downs lie either side of the road. There are some muddy footpaths on the reserve.

Grid reference: SW 956 676
