a yomping day

A voluntary ranger day and I had company. We cut back overhanging paths, only secateurs and a folding saw, bigger tools are too heavy and besides they could frighten other walkers! Then yomped across the moors, not much wild life, a few grouse, some swallows still here and a flock of very pretty black sheep, may be Hebridean? A couple of requests to dog owners to put their dogs on leads, PLEASE! Don't these dog owners CARE?
Then a field with three beautiful belted Galloways (they're cows!), two still slightly fluffy with fluffy ears, but huge.
Finished off the walk with lots of slashing back of bracken and nettles, our walking sticks came in very handy.
An ice cream from a Yorkshire creamery and home, quite tired, but happy.
