Sheep tuck into a welcomed bale of hay as snow returns to the hillside. I knew a cold front was on the way but I was not expecting snow again. I think the woodpecker was equally surprised as he was noticeably silent today. ‘Doris’ the ewe (right in photo) always keeps her distance while the others dive into the hay with abandon. Doris is actually the one remaining sheep from the last flock and still suffers, I suspect, from trauma after a lamb and the other ewe were taken by a wolf last year. However she does respond when I coax her to come forward and tuck in, albeit very warily. So even sheep respond to being spoken to, believe it or not.
