Hampstead Heath n-ewes: Sheep back on the Heath amid sweltering temperatures

It’s official. Hampstead Heath has some new woolly residents and – though they are not quite roast mutton – with temperatures still pushing 30, the five sheep may well have been re-evaluating their life choices on a sweltering first day back.
Baaa-ing any complaints about the weather, their (temporary) reintroduction appears to have gone smoothly, with footpaths rammed and eagle-eyed volunteers helping farmer Tom Davis keep his flock in check.
The sheep will spend each day until Friday grazing on the Heath's Tumulus field near Parliament Hill.
At night they are to be kept in an enclosure near Kenwood House.
