Back on the 9th February, together with 3 photographers, I was in the tower hide attempting to add to my film footage of red kites. One of my companions alerted me 'something going on on the hill'. I duly turned the video camera in the direction pointed out and to my horror saw 2 sheep being strung up to a tree and butchered by 3 men.
The video was used as evidence and the court case has now found the 3 guilty and each sentenced to costs and 240 hours of work in the community.. In days of old this was a hanging offence!!
