Mountain Goat & Fiery Tw*t


Crossing a vineyard


Returning from a falsie


On and up the hill


Returning from another falsie


Flour blob cunningly hidden behind piled-up stones after a check


The pack have just crossed a dual-carriageway (main road).
What is the hare smiling about?


Ahh! a falsie on the little bridge


Our hare proudly shows-off an almost perfect check


We come across a large flock of sheep guarded by a shepherd with 4 sheepdogs


Then Mountain Goat - out checking finds his way back blocked by another flock of sheep.


Anyone for hashing??


We cautiously walk through the flock with the sheepdogs barking


The shepherd seems friendly


On On!


The large sow that aggressively chased the hare when she was laying the trail


Passing the RSPCA dog kennels. The noise of all the dogs barking was deafening.

Location: 37°52'6.08"N, 23°57'18.22"E

Your photographer Mad Dog trying to run the circle & take photos at the same time didn't realise
the light level had dropped and the camera flash was turned off. Hence the blurred photos.
