A frosty but undeniably beautiful start to the day today; there are some fantastic sunrises to be seen from Attingham as the light comes up from behind the Wrekin and Wenlock Edge:

This is just a quick post to share some pictures that I took today of some Redwings; this winter visitor from Scandinavia can be seen across the Estate right now, with a small flock of particularly friendly ones currently feasting on the holly berries just outside the Shop and Visitor Reception. Redwing are Britain's smallest thrush, and can be easily distinguished by their white stripe above the eye and red patch beneath the wing.


  1. That is a glorious sunrise :-)

  2. It certainly makes it easier to be at work so early in the morning! I do love Shropshire and am so lucky to work on such a beautiful estate:)

  3. Great post. I have been searching for this exact info for a while now. I will bookmark it in my list.
