Some of the first lambs of the year are being born at Snettisham Park, near King's Lynn.
Colleen Walters, who has managed the farm with her husband Trevor for five years, said: 'It's always a positive sign Spring is around the corner.
'We've got 400 ewes to lamb. We're expecting 100 in January, 100 in February, 100 in march and 100 in April.
'We lamb them inside on rotation. We know when they're due really accurately and what they're expecting - singles, twins, triplets.'
New arrivals with just a brother or sister for company remain with their mothers.
But ewes can only feed two offspring. So one of each trio of triplets is bottle fed, with visitors to the farm, which is open to the public, helping to feed them.
