Dyrham Park; decorated trees & robins

The humans took me to National Trust Dyrham Park today where I spent most of the time in the bear carrier. It was very cold and windy. The deer didn’t seem too bothered though.

The formal gardens behind the house are sheltered from the wind so there I climbed out of the bear carrier. Humans had been busy decorating trees with ribbons.

Apparently it is a tradition dating back to the 17th Century.

I selected a ribbon and tied it on a nearby tree. Can you spot the robin who was watching me?

He was very friendly and let me take a close up photo…

After saying goodbye to the robin we headed off to warm up in the café where I enjoyed a festive spiced scone.

I bought the humans a couple of felt robins in the shop before getting back into the bear carrier for the cold walk back to the carpark.

It is cold at Dyrham in the winter but still a great place to visit.
