The National Trust has completed its annual round up of the goats that live on Ventnor Downs.

Every year, a team braves the challenges of steep terrain and tough vegetation, at the south east Wight beauty spot, not to mention the elusive and stubborn nature of the feral animals themselves.

The Old English herd have their ear tag numbers recorded, teeth checked, hooves trimmed and health assessed.

This year, autumn sunshine meant perfect conditions for Tuesday's round-up by National Trust staff and members of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and volunteers.

The animals were temporarily gathered in a pen near the old radar station.
