    Id guess the only legal means is to feed them so their not hungry not ideal but I think your stuck if you want your sheep on the hill

    I'm Having problems with foxes coming into lambing fields. The Foxes are coming in from the hill and the forestry blocks. Once they start on lambs it can be a nightmare!! But at least it's a bit easier with dedicated lambing fields, prior to sheep going further out. Basically been sitting out and feeding the foxes a lead diet instead. The hill lambing is a bit harder to keep on top of due to the obvious.

    One of the areas is having the same problem as yourself and it is badgers that are doing the damage, again though it is lambing fields and not out on the hill. The only thing I'm doing to put them off the fields is putting the lamp on them seems to work they don't like the white light. As for keeping them from coming into the area at all not too sure. I'm sure someone on here will have the answer.

    I was once asked to stop badgers entering a large garden. I ended up putting a single strand electric fence round the whole garden, can't remember the exact height of the wire but it was only a few inches off the ground.

    Is it true that a Badger only takes the head of a Lamb

    No, had them taking the heads off and eating the cacass. Can't remember them ever removing the lambs like foxes do.
