Hay Bales near Riddings

These fields haven't been grazed partly due to no water available, but the best bits - unusually - were made into quite decent hay late July. Most of the area is too risky to cut due to numerous large boulders and steep bumpy ground.

Making hay was as easy as can be this year but number of bales was down - perhaps not so bad as feared though. However regrowth was very poor until thundery showers arrived in the second half of July.~
