The sheep quickly got into its stride against the cyclist

The video - Sheep vs cyclist - posted on YouTube by cyclist PeowPeowPeowLasers has already had more than 100,000 views.

In his comments for the video, shot on a road alongside Wastwater, he says simply: "I had a race with a sheep and lost."

What really spooked the sheep was the fact that the cyclist was shouting out loud"MINT SAUCE" which you couldn't hear over the music.

How far would you go to look at a bird?

Very far. Excited when rare birds set up home here

I watch birds through the window and on TV. That's all

Birdwatching doesn't appeal to me. I'd go a long way to avoid a gull though
