Tracks in the earth

After a lot of heavy rain earlier in the month, the past week or so has been warmer and sunnier (it won’t last). This has helped to dry out the previously sodden ground, but nonetheless there is still ample evidence in the surrounding fields of the passage of farm tractors through the mud.

Send in the clean-up team

Sheep markets are held regularly in our local village. They take place on the Rue du Marché Ovin (it means…er, ‘Sheep Market Road’). When I was recently mooching around the metal pens I had obviously just missed one.

In the circumstances, you can’t really blame the sheep for being nervous, I suppose.
