Balancing goat, Valley of Rocks
Balancing goat, Valley of Rocks
This wild goat seems oblivious of the hundreds-of-foot drop immediately to its left as it casually nibbles at its hind quarters. These hardy beasts were reintroduced here in 1976 from the Cheviots, but the Valley of Rocks has been home to wild goats since records began - for example there were 75 recorded as being in these parts in the Domesday Book.
