Autumn on the Helford River and creeks can be such a stunning time of year. The ancient oak trees start to turn the river becomes a blaze of colour.

The wildlife is in abundance too with herons, little egrets, curlews and the kingfisher – it’s cobalt blue wings and orange breast mirroring the cobalt blue autumnal skies and russet leaves.
