Little lambs


We are being royally entertained by the lambs in the field behind our cottage.



Our house is situated in such a way that the upstairs rear windows are level with the neighbouring fields. So, when we open the windows the livestock out there can look in -
we have had the odd cow or two stick their heads into the bathroom whilst were in there!

At the moment we have the lambs & their Mum's. The antic's of the lambs is fascinating keeping us entertained in the evenings whilst they fight over the highest mound playing 'king of the castle' - it's better than putting on the telly.

The sound of their bleating fill the air and drift in through the windows at night - it's lovely & soothing

Here are a few pic's I took this morning -



creeping up to investigate a crow...............


Off to explore - the lambs seem to get up and running right from the first - after a few wobbly hours they are off and ready to explore & play - thank god human infants are not like that can you imagine..............



Sleeping off breakfast............


These three seemed to be in sync - copying each others actions for ages...........


Whats that?
I was watching one earlier following a butterfly around the field practically pouncing on it every time it landed....


And just enjoying the sun..........
