Friday Photo (82): Wildlife in the Field – Confused Sheep

Each morning when we arrived in the field, hoards of sheep* would come marching over sandstone ridges from miles around to congregate in front of our car. After spending a while thinking we may have established a new animal religion, we realised the poor animals mistook us for their farmer coming to feed them.

*We acknowledge that sheep aren’t actually ‘wildlife’!
