Lambing in the Midlands

The sight of new-born lambs in the fields is one of the sure signs that spring is finally here. As part of caring for landscapes we also look after flocks of sheep and lambs, some quite rare, at places across the Midlands.

While our fallow deer usually steal the show, our rare-breed Jacob sheep have their own important story to tell.

Lambing at Brockhampton 

This time of year sees the fields around Brockhampton filled with lovely lambs. Meet these gentle creatures and help to care for them with the farmers.
