RePlace 2(a) North Ronaldsay

Flight to the most northerly island of the Orkney archaepelago, arriving to find winter was still going strong.

First part of the deposit here – left without a companion to oversee it – in a sheep enclosure. The sheep are knitted with North Ronaldsay wool, so a RePlacement in deed.

The pund is used to gather the shore sheep. They live most of the year on the strand, eating kelp, for which their stomachs have adapted.  Grass is not often on the menu.

Coordinates to follow as soon as the GPSr decides to cooperate.
