Today I bring you something a little Christmassy! I spotted this little fella on a trip to Packwood House on Good Friday. It was raining, I was on a mobility scooter, and my hubby was trying to snap this robin sitting on a gate, while the kids were running off down the road. I grabbed my camera, zoomed in, (blind as I didn’t have my glasses on) and hey presto, it was one of my favourite photos of the day. I’ve not even edited it.Have you ever managed to capture a Robin, I’ve heard they like to fly off quite quickly?
I’ll be writing up about our visit to Packwood House very soon. It was our first visit to a National Trust Property since joining the NT this year for the first time. We have many more places on our bucket list to visit and I can’t wait. The day didn’t go completely smoothly but the whole point was to persuade us to get out of the house more and I’m sure it will work.
Boo and the Little Man enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt while Star and I enjoyed checking out other facilities. We all enjoyed viewing the house together. I even manged to have a little walk around downstairs. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the stairs but I had a nice rest while my other family members had a mooch around the bedrooms.
In the spirit of Easter, here’s the dining room table all set for a fabulous spread. What’s on your Easter menu?
You did well to catch the robin, they always fly away when I point my camera at them
We have NT membership too, it really does encourage us to get out although there is very little close to us in South Wales. Have a happy Easter #MySundayPhoto
Hello Robin Red Breast, he must have been looking for Easter eggs
I love robins, they seem to follow us around and I often hear one singing. It's glorious. Can't wait to see your post about Packwood House, it looks wonderful. #MySundayPhoto
Fabulous looking table. Fit for royalty! Easter Egg hunts here then lunch with friends, enjoy your day, Happy Easter
I love the capture of the robin. We tend not to have a special dinner for Easter
Happy Easter and thank you for linking up
Well done! What a great photo! Robins are just adorable.
Happy Easter! That table does look fabulous x
I never tire of seeing robins. It looks like they are all set for a feast there 🙂 Happy Easter x #MySundayPhoto
What a pretty robin… we have robins here in the states, but they look different than yours… very interesting. 🙂
You've captured the robin perfectly! Such a clear photo.
It was lasagne on our Easter menu and, strangely, Christmas pudding for those who wanted it as my mum and dad had got one left over!
I love exploring NT places – we've had our membership for just over a year now and it's been brilliant. Love your shot of the robin – they are such beautiful birds 🙂
Happy Easter Love the robin so sweet
Great shot of the robin. I spent ages at the weekend chasing a squirrel to try and photograph it! One of favourite things at National Trust properties is the sight of fully laid dinner table.
