Dudmaston Hall NT Shropshire

We made an afternoon trip out on Sunday to see the Snowdrops at Dudmaston Hall in Shropshire on what was a very dull and dismal day, at least it wasn't raining. Only the parkland was open to visitors for the special Snowdrop walks. It's a while since we have been to Dudmaston and we had forgotten how wonderful the walks are we will definitely be going back soon!

Anyway looking at the weather and considering that we were there for Snowdrops I took the 500mm lens off the camera and put my small lens on, so no bird photos in this post. Just a bit of scenery and some Snowdrops. That doesn't mean we didn't see any birds on the contrary, we had some good sightings; Kingfisher, Buzzard, Shoveler (4), Tufted Duck, Great Crested Grebe and Mute Swan as well as Jackdaw, Crow, Woodpigeon, Blackbird, Coot, Moorhen, Mallard and Robin. We thought we also saw a Goldcrest but the bird flitted away before we could confirm it.

So just a few scenic snaps from our walk:

Next stop, possibly Kinver on Tuesday!
