A north Norfolk farm welcomed lamb quadruplets just in time for one of its increasingly popular open days.
Wendy and Graham Williams, who run Felbrigg Hall Farm, near Cromer, were delighted at the arrival of four new-borns on Friday.
Mr Williams said it was rare for quads to be born, revealing it had not happened at Felbrigg Hall for "at least two or three years".
This spring, the farm was expecting around 550 lambs from its 287 ewes.
Over the weekend, families were able to meet and cuddle some of the younger contingent, and even witnessed more being born.
Amid growing interest, the lambing sessions could not be held in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We have been doing this for several years now, and I think people who are regulars have really enjoyed coming back," added Mr Williams.
