Ewe know when spring's on its way, as the first new lambs appear.
Church Farm Rare Breeds Centre at Stow Bardolph, near Downham Market, throws open its gates each year for visitors to feed the new arrivals.
So far, things have got off to a slow start, with seven ewes lambing, including a set of triplets.
Public feeding times are at 10.30am, 12.30pm, 2,30pm and 4pm.
The farm is asking all adult visitors to wear a mask.
"Our lovely staff run the lambing yard 24/7 and an outbreak of Covid would be devastating to our ability to operate that and be able to run these sessions," it said.
New born lambs can also be seen in the sheep maternity ward.
