Winter sun in Winteringham.

I forgot I’d taken this snap last week! Sheep munching down happily on hay!

That's a lovely picture Kate. We've just been on a walk up the road and seen the sheep grazing but they had red and blue patches of colour on them. I suppose that tells the farmer how many lambs they are carrying....?

Thanks Linda, I thought you’d like this one! I took a pic of them close up too - I may have to post!
You do enjoy your fresh air, beautiful scenery- filled walks don’t you! I’m not sure about the markings myself, you probably know more than me. ☺️

It's just nice to get some exercise Kate and breathe in the fresh air. Looking at your picture, the area seems very flat.

The area around the Humber estuary is really very flat, Linda.

I saw a farming programme at the weekend, and they do mark the sheep depending on how many lambs they have.

I watched Kate Humbles program last night where she was colouring the chests of the rams. I think the colour maybe denotes that the ewes have been 'tupped' and by which ram...

Yes you right Janey, the rams put a mark on the sheep too. I love watching those programmes. On this one I was watching it was about a few farmers and one of them was a young woman who farmed on her own and had about five dogs that went around on a vehicle with her as she gathered the sheep in. She was bringing them down from the high areas to the lowers ones near the farm for the winter.

Thanks for adding, Janey and Linda - interesting piece of info. 😊

I watched that one too Linda, it was amazing to see her and her dogs watching her waiting for the next instruction.
I tell you what I really enjoyed last evening, Julie Walters coastal railways travelling up the east coast to Scotland.
All the lovely people she met and learnt about their work and helping them with it. She's so warm and funny, I was laughing away to myself..:))

You must have a good camera Kate as you take some brilliant pictures!

Thanks Rose, I do take a Nikon out or just my phone. This was actually just my phone, on this particular day.
