Goats at West Shore, Llandudno
These photographs (© Gerald England - click for larger versions) were taken in April 2005. I've just rediscovered them so thought it was time to share.
The Great Orme in Llandudno is home to around a hundred feral Kashmiri goats.
A trip of goats is here seen heading for the West Shore, led by an unusually black specimen (all the others I've seen were white).
A black goat persued by a white goat is using the steps over the sea wall to get onto the West Shore. In the background beyond the breakwater is Penmaenbach Head.
The collective noun for a group of goats is "trip". These have tripped down off the Great Orme to gather and graze by the West Shore breakwater.
An extremely interesting account of the Great Orme Goats can be found at http://www.llandudno.com/goats.html.
