Next week the Swaledale sheep will be gathered down off the fell to the lowland for tupping.
The other grazers have gathered their sheep therefore our sheep are beginning to move to other hefted areas for fresh bite as there are no sheep to stop them.
Yesterday Keith and I took some gathered sheep swept up in other shepherd’s gathers and sent a few others back onto our ground.
They were then dropped off at the fell farm in by.
I made this video of photo and film as we went about the morning.
