Bratton Seymour near Castle Cary in Somerset sits on Bratton Hill with long views to the east.  This outlook has made it a favourite of mine during the spring equinox.  Today I was a few days late – but close enough.    However, it was not the church but a small flock of sheep that caught my imagination.

The Flock

I arrived at Church Walk just before dawn and  these girls immediately took an strong interest in the photographer.
