About the West Country

National Trust LinkThis is a general area for some of the unique wildlife I've seen when I used to live in the West Country. National Trust Estates visited include Dyrham Park, Hidcote, The Courts and Tyntesfield. Click on the Oak Leaf to see the National Trust's website for their wildlife.

My visits to these places were from 2003-2019
