Spring Baby

Spring baby lambs and cows

Well, I think we’re all agreed that 2020 was quite a year! Sometimes it seems to have dragged and dragged and, at other times, it seems to have flown by. Regarding the latter, I can hardly believe that a year’s gone by since I was photographing Liddle Lamzy Diveys.

But, sure enough, and as regular as clockwork, there they are again, filling our fields with their bleats and moos: lambs and calves. It is wonderful to be able to stroll along the Breamish Valley and see them out chewing their cud.

It’s a fact that there are more sheep in the Northumberland National Park than people. I shared this titbit with my eight-year-old granddaughter the other day and she nodded in wise agreement, “Yes, I think there must be about one hundred.” A bit of an underestimate, I’d say.

Anyway, it’s great to be out and about and feeling a little more connected to the cycles of nature.
