The researchers from the Soay Sheep Project have now left the island after a very busy lambing trip. The 'sheepie' team caught 161 lambs that were born within the Village Bay study area - a massive total and a job well done! The lambs are surprisingly fast and I am tired just thinking about all the running the team did.
As an ex-sheepie, I was very pleased to join a catch and I received a gold star as reward for catching the lamb!
