Hazlehead Park

Look into the eye, not around the eye, but into the eye...

15:38:39 they are peaceable here, as FJ natters to them, possibly in Scots, possibly just in a Scottish accent:

and then ... 15:39:19 the only thing protecting me was the fence.

I did post a comment early on this Duncan but somehow it got lost. However, a question, it is known that Scottish blackface sheep baa in broad Scots (!) Is it ths same with ducks living in Scotland, do they quack in a Scots dialect???? Or is that a mute question. Or does that pertain only to swans?????????

Don't know, Dawn. I know that some dogs understand Gaelic.

mmmhhh, just like sheep dogs, some only understand Welsh. Talking of which, have you ever noticed the difference between Welsh sheep and Scots. The Welsh ones have this lovely drawn out tone whereas the Scots ones have more of a soft, lilting tone.Dawn

I think I noticed that when I was down in the Brecons last year, but couldn't swear to it. It may be down to the breed. I know that Japanese sheep sound different to the black-faced ones I'm used to. Well they sounded different in that wee sheep.exe program from a few years back :)

It was Pablo. As to thin-ness, no comment. I know my place.
