Moelwyn goats alive and well
The Moelwyn gang are proud to announce the arrival of two kids which is twice as many as I saw last year. Each night the kids and the two adult females take shelter on a steep sided slope, thick with gorse, the sort of place where no-one is going to be able to sneak up unnoticed. While the kids are hidden beneath, the adults munch away on the tips of gorse, one eye checking I’m keeping my distance.
This family has distinctive black and white markings whereas the group beneath the railway line are more mottled grey. Things are not so good below, down to one billy and three females with no surviving kids for at least three years.
