Wildlife Conservation

With our extensive Parkland, the Blenheim Palace Estate is an ideal habitat for the abundance of wildlife that lives here.

The Great Lake and surrounding woodland are home to an array of bird species including geese, herons, ducks, moorhens, swans, woodpeckers and pheasants.

We work closely with a variety of conservation agencies to safeguard our protected species, which can be found throughout the Park. The Grand Bridge is home to thousands of bats, and you may spot beetle traps hanging from trees around the Estate as we track the different varieties that have made their home here.

You might spot some wild deer or muntjac if you walk the extended woodland trail around the Park Perimeter. There are also hare, rabbits, our resident flocks of sheep and much more!
