Sandness: two sheep and Holm of Melby
Sandness: two sheep and Holm of Melby
These two skittish sheep seemed rather surprised to see me - anyone - joining them on this drab, drizzly Saturday morning. Having just gone through their field and now on the seaward side of the fence, we can look back towards them with Holm of Melby, a small island in the Sound of Papa, in the background.
