Could spring finally be around the corner?
These adorable lambs enjoying feeding sessions at Wroxham Barns seem to show that it might just be.
The soft and hungry little things are some of the earliest bottle-fed babies in the region – and heartbreakingly they are orphans too.
Farm manager Eileen Calverley, 52, said the little ones have been given to the attraction from farms in Norfolk and Suffolk as their mums cannot feed them. And families have been flocking to Hoveton-based Wroxham Barns to feed the 27 lambs this half-term.
Wroxham Barns owner Ian Russell said: 'Our visitors love bottle-feeding the lambs and these little creatures really are adorable. They are orphan lambs who come to us from local farms and the farmers are very grateful to us for looking after them.
You may also want to watch:
'We get them when they are really tiny, so people often return several times to feed them and to see how they're getting on. We usually have at least two dozen lambs and we make sure all our younger visitors have a turn at bottle-feeding them.'
Lamb-feeding is daily on the junior farm at 11am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm.
