Hundreds of visitors keen to see the first steps of newborn lambs flocked to a north Norfolk farm at the weekend, despite wet and muddy bank holiday weather.

Felbrigg Hall Farm, which has been run by Graham and Wendy Williams and their family since 1989, hosts annual springtime open days, with attractions including cows and calves, day old chicks and vintage tractors.

Up to 400 lambs are expected to be born over the next couple of weeks and, although Easter visitor numbers look set to be down on last year, farm staff are hoping for brighter weather – and a bigger turnout - next weekend.

“I think people like the fact that we are a working farm and you see it as it is,” Mr Williams said. “We have healthy animals and ones that need a bit more looking after and, time and again, visitors congratulate us on being friendly and informative.”

Felbrigg Hall Farm is open from 10.30am-4.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit the farm’s Facebook page.
