  1. What are the temperatures in your place? Here in Austria our ‘winter’ is still quite autumn-like, with some record-breaking maximum temperatures (nearly 20°C!) in some places.

    1. Welsh mountain sheep farming for hundreds of years, not a lot else to be gleaned from this land. The organisation I work for owns this farm now so we have the pleasant (and humbling) task of managing it for wildlife – the trees are regenerating and the heather on the mountain top is some of the best heath plant communities in Wales

    1. It sure is rugged terrain Pat, which is why the land uses of the centuries have been hardy sheep grazing, forestry and mining (copper, manganese) – not easy to make a living up there
