|The Iron Bridge.|
Today we spent the morning in the town of Ironbridge with Jayne’s sister Brenda and her husband Keith. We parked and had a walk through town towards the world heritage site The Ironbridge, building was started by Abraham Darby the 3rd in 1779 the bridge opened in 1781 on New Year's Day.
|The town and River Seven from the Iron Bridge.|
It still looks as impressive today as it away has, spanning the River Seven deep in the bottom of the gorge. We had a walk and did a bit of nic-nac shopping and then went into one of the many cafes for a Hot Chocolate and a warm.
|Looking back up to the Bridge.|
On the way around I either heard or saw several Nuthatchs (Trepador Azul / Sitta europaea), Blue (Herrerillo Común / Parus caeruleus) and Coal Tits (Carbonero Garrapinos / Parus ater), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulga / Falco tinnunculus), Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinula Chloropus), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs) and Common Starling (Estornino Pinto / Sturnus vulgaris).
