Holiday makers were held up this afternoon when a sheep decided to make a run for it.

Aucklander Natalie Norman, 28, snapped the lone sheep making its way along State Highway One near Warkworth, holding up traffic along the way.

"State Highway One was a little baaaaacked up! Was glad to see it wasn't the Warkworth bottleneck," she told ONE News.

The intersection in Warkwoth is a well-known trouble spot during busy holiday periods.

Auckland Anniversary day is observed in the northern half of the North Island on Monday.
