Having posted recently about the two ewes on the pastures who have produced lambs unaided, I walked along this morning to find four ewes and three lambs. None of these are supposed to be there at all. Perhaps my assumptions have been wrong. Are they after all invaders from the lot which graze on Wimble Holme Hill rather than clever evaders who managed to avoid being taken off Blacka with the others? Who knows?
A few minutes later we saw two sheep in a quite different part of the site. they must be from the herd on Houndkirk Moor who regularly jump the fence and create hazards on the Hathersage Road, A625.
