Taken last year at the spectacular Cheddar Gorge, this is one of a flock of ancient British Primitive Goats.

Thank you everyone for taking time to visit and to everyone who left comments and votes on my Tub of Sunshine and other images.

... Cheddar's goats are rather unusual, too. The herd was relocated by the British Feral Goat Research Group, a group of enthusiasts who make a hobby of studying free-ranging goats. The move saved the animals from sentence of death at their old home, where they were playing havoc with newly planted trees.

Durham ecologist Dr Shirley Goodyer is a group member. She says there are many herds of feral goats across Britain, but she believes that at least some of these "outlaws" are goat nobility. "Our interest is in what we've named the British Primitive Goat," she says. "It is the original and only unimproved variety of the British Isles. All our other breeds are based on comparatively recent imports.

A wonderful and quite informative pre-narrative supported by this rather endearing image, and one which will I am sure appeal to many.

I remember these as stars on an episode of Countryfile. They were located there for an environmental control (which I can't remember!). This one's got a lovely colouring.
