Sheep on the move

Rounded up and ready to go.

The 5 Hebridean sheep that have been living in the species rich grassland opposite the Wenlock Edge Inn have gone to the Long Mynd for the Winter. They have been on the grassland since the hay was cut in August, keeping down the end of season growth so that it is good condition ready for next years growing season.
I am pleased to report that rounding them up went well,  no rangers were seen running laps of the field as the sheep were fooled into entering the pen by a bucket of nuts. If only it was always this easy!
