Nature carries on, oblivious to the sights and sounds.

The first of this season’s ants stirs on the bark of a tree close to the cycle race.

This is probably a Lasius Niger (common black ant). And once the race has passed, walking down the hill, the farmyard geese congregate.

These are ancestrally Greylag geese, though now domesticated.

By the bridge, sheep cluster with their lambs.

One poor lamb is separated from its mother and calls for help.

It eventually decides on working its way back round the fence which cut it off.
