On the eve of Valentine’s Day, National Trust has issued this impressive collection of ‘animals in love’ photographs taken in the Warwickshire and Solihull region.
They were taken at properties including Charlecote Park, near Warwick, Baddesley Clinton, near Solihull and Coughton Court, near Alcester.
The pictures aim to highlight the wonderful breadth of wildlife looked after by the conservation charity.
Joy Margerum, area ranger at Charlecote Park, said: “Everyone enjoys a good love story, and we thought Valentine’s Day would be the perfect time to share these beautiful and romantic pictures of some of the animals we look after as part of our conservation work here at Charlecote Park, and across the Midlands.
“More importantly, they remind us that beauty is everywhere – not just within the properties we take care of, but also in the grounds around them. They’re a sign that it’s time to fall in love with nature again, this year more than ever.”
