of lambs and goslings




Nora gave birth to twin lambs this morning both very small, we’ll have to get them in the byre overnight as it is still very cold and showery. Geraldine’s lamb, born 3 days ago, is looking very healthy, which is remarkable given the conditions.

Down to 4 goslings now – another one has succumbed to the cold and wet overnight. Will try to corral them into the salmon bin overnight to ensure that they stay safe and dry.


This is the worst weather for May that we have experienced since coming to Shetland 8 years ago, the animals are really suffering for it and the grass has stopped growing. Just hope is starts improving soon.
