Sheep are next up

On Friday we were busy rounding up and loading the sheep that have been grazing the Snook over the last few months. They have done a great job and can now get back to the farm.

Back at the farm!
 As we've mentioned in previous posts having stock on site is a great tool for managing sward and creating bare ground in the dunes. The benefits show over the few months the sheep have been here. Looking forward to spring/summer the grazing will also benefit our wildflowers.
