Volunteer John Hubble captured the early morning sunshine at Croome Park, Worcestershire. The 250 year old parkland was designed by society landscaper Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. And rangers have spent the last decade working closely with a cattle grazier to restore the grassland landscape that would once have been familiar to Croome’s eighteenth century owners.
Temperatures in parts of the Lake District dropped to minus 3 celsius last night. Loughrigg Fell, near Ambleside, was left covered in frost.
Ranger Richard Newman was checking recently-installed boardwalks at Morden Hall Park, south London, when he caught this beautiful sunrise.
Parts of Llyn Ogwen in Snowdonia froze overnight – the first time this winter that the lake has frozen over. According to local legend Llyn Ogwen could be the final resting place of Excalibur – King Arthur’s famous sword.
