Wallington NT revisited

We broke our journey home at Wallington, where it was a National Heritage Open Day. When we arrived the person checking membership cards said, “You can come again.”

I replied, “We have; we were here on Saturday!”

As the house did not open until noon we went to the wildlife hide and spent some time watching the birds.

The area around the hide was well-stocked with bird-food, attracting lots of birds. Unfortunately my phone was not ideal for this sort of photography, so I have only one picture to share. (I have also mentioned our bird-watching experience in a post on Sue’s Trifles.)

I took a few pictures in the house, which is a fascinating building containing many interesting items. The ones which caught my eye were of flowers and owls as I have friends, who are also interested in these.

We had time for another walk in the grounds after looking round the house. There is plenty to do both at Wallington and Cragside for many visits.
