Snowdrops have been showing white tips for a few weeks and we have just about got a few in full bloom. Today I saw that other harbinger of Spring, my first lamb! A set of twins being carried over to a waiting land rover, I think the ewe caught the farmer out, as most of the sheep on my route to work usually get put under cover to lamb.
Only another week to Imbolc! Hurrah!
The lamb photo is the 2007 winner of the BBC Countryfile Photo Competition. You can read all about how Richard captured this image of a Spring lamb at his blog, Richard Peters Photography
