A new-born calf
A new-born calf
Near Achayerran, I found this calf completely on its own; there were no other cattle at all visible anywhere within sight. I checked it over and it seemed to be in very good health. Concerned it might have been left behind when the beasts were taken off the hill, I went around to the farm after I'd returned to my car and had a chat with the farmer. He told me that it wasn't uncommon for the mother to move away grazing with the rest of the herd and return later for the calf. He was aware that one of his beasts had calved in the location and knew about the calf. He went on to tell me a lot about this part of the hill which I wouldn't have found out otherwise and which has been incorporated into descriptions on other images.
