Ruth Sanderson helps move the cattle of Strangford Lough from island to island. A National Trust barge transports livestock around the lough, preserving wildlife through conservation grazing and enabling one of the lough's oldest traditions, island farming, to thrive. Ruth joins ranger Hugh Thurgate as he helps a farmer move his ten cows, bull and several calves off one island as the water supply has dried up.
