Skye Wedding Photographer in Sussex – on the Monica Edward's Trail Part II
08 June 2015

 One of the benefits of living in the country is the ability to know when to intervene with nature and when not to. With sheep, if the fleece is heavy and a ewe manages to get onto her back, she can find it impossible to right herself. It's easy to spot when a sheep is simply lying down and when she's in trouble.

We were following the trail from Rye Harbour, round towards Winchelsea Beach to Camber Castle. The Romney Marsh sheep figure regularly in Monica Edward's books, set in this area. The sheep belonged to Mr Merrow and, although the original Castle Farm is not longer in existence, the sheep are!

While walking along, my husband and I immediately recognised a ewe in trouble. The lamb was even standing on its mother's side, trying to suckle! My husband vaulted the fence and, of course, a stranger instantly disturbed the flock. Undeterred he got to the ewe and, being strong, righted her quickly, reuniting her with her lamb.

We were delighted to return from the castle and see the two fine and well and this has to figure as one or even two of many lives, both human and animal, which my husband has saved!
