Last year the first one lamb at Middleton Place was born April 7th so I was somewhat surprised when I stopped by on Monday, March 14th and was told “any day now.” I didn’t get back until Thursday, to find a single had been born on Tuesday and a set of twins arrived just that morning.
The twins were finishing up feeding when I got there and almost immediately collapsed into sleep.
The older one was more adventurous, spending some time under the shelter.
Then she checked out her new mates.
I look forward to photographing them as they grow, and hopefully in better light.
