We found one of our neighbour sheep with one lamb but in distress lambing, so went to lend a hand as both my manager & I have experience of lambing. Unfortunately the sheep really wasn’t well, we lambed a still born, which made her a little more comfortable, Once the Shepard arrived he then lambed the 3rd lamb, unfortunately again still born, but mother & son are both now in the safe hands of the Shepard in his shed.
This video shows us trying to get the wee man to suckle as he was very weak, and the mother making signs of a small bit of recovery

 

Oyster Catchers

We found them falling off the roof & caught them, put them in a safe place for mum to come & collect as per the SSPCA advice. All back reunited, fortunately no more tumbles of the roof
