A dozen Bagot goat kids tipped to be a hit among summer visitors to Cromer

The number of kids born as part of a council's Bagot goat-breeding programme has hit a final tally of 12.
It's the first time North Norfolk District has helped rear kids since the Bagots – which are listed as 'vulnerable' by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust – first arrived in 2016. The 12 new arrivals are equally spilt, with six boys and six girls.
The herd was originally brought in to help keep the cliff at Cromer clear, but the Bagots have since caught the eye of Norfolk Wildlife Trust and Suffolk Wildlife Trust, who have bought and borrowed some of the herd for habitat management on their land.
The nannies and kids are now having a break away from their habitat management work, at Wiveton Hall. The goats have also become a tourist attraction, and the 12 baby Bagots are expected to prove a hit with the public when they head to Cromer later this year.
