Travelling flock boosted

AN extra 122 sheep have been bought by Northumberland Wildlife Trust to strengthen its Flexigraze conservation grazing programme.

The new additions include blackface, Swaledale, Manx, Hebridean and Shetland. They have boosted the size of the flock to more than 300.

It continues to clock up road miles as it travels round the region grazing on many of the Trust’s reserves.
