New recruits

We have welcomed new recruits to the project this week in the form of eight Hardwick sheep.  having completed the planting and fencing of Cave’s Batts field we have now successfully introduced the sheep to graze down the rank grass and help the wild flowers to come though.  The small flock is made up of 4 ewes in lamb and 4 lambs from last year.  The new lambs aren’t expected until May so we’ll keep you posted.  Not gone as far as naming them as yet!thumb_IMG_0266_1024
