New lamb with mum

New Lambs

Mothers and lambs just a few hours old. Many in the fields around the village right now. They are a delightful sight, but extreme caution is needed when walking nearby. These new Mums and their pregnant companions must not be disturbed in any way. They need a quiet life. I am sure you will all take care when passing by as some animals settle very close to the public footpath – I had to silently and slowly inch past on one occasion as there was no alternative route. Notices on the fence posts remind walkers and joggers with dogs that worrying sheep is a criminal offence. These pictures were taken with the camera zoom full out.
