Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England


Spud on Sunday Part XXXVI

Restricted Access

Spud has had his playground restricted, as there are 90 sheep grazing in his field

Spud and gate-1

It’s not that he’d trouble them, but he would spook them, and 90 sheep stampeding down a steep field with a drystone wall at the bottom is not a good idea, it has the makings of an expensive disaster and a lot of rebuilding of walls. They are only going to be with us for a couple of weeks, lot of sheep  for a short sharp munch of the meadow and then they will be off to pastures new. Spud will just have to wait patiently.
