I think there are about 11 million sheep in Wales. However there is not a great deal of money to be made from farming them. So, many farmers diversify - this one into farming the wind for which they get a handsome return.
It is a contentious issue in these parts but those who are against change should recall that before sheep were introduced, these hills were covered with trees! This one is called Mynydd Gorddu (roughly pronounced munith gorr- thee) and is only about 800 feet high. It is perfect for a wind farm: no other serious hill between it and the sea and not too steep. Therefore the wind blows steadily and with little turbulence. This area has been ear-marked for much bigger turbines and the opposition is becoming better organised. A major issue is that a network of overhead cables and large pylons to hold them is a distinct possibility. You can bet the power companies will not want to go to the expense of burying the cable!
As you can see, unlike in some parts of Britain, drought is not a problem here! It's not my best photo but, having cycled all the way up there, I sure was going to use it!
