It might not feel like it but spring is only just around the corner.

And as if to prove the point the first lambs have arrived on a farm park in west Norfolk.

Early February sees the 400-strong flock of ewes at Snettisham Park, near King's Lynn, give birth to their young.

Recent years have seen the sheep become a tourist attraction in their own right, drawing hundreds of families to see them.

Visitors to the attraction can watch sheep "lambing live" indoors at the farm, as well as watching the new arrivals take their first tottering steps.

But bottle feeds for orphan lambs are off the menu for visitors because of Covid restrictions this year.
