The first Soay lamb was born last night. Becs and I managed to see the final stages through binoculars, but it was dark, so we could only really see the outlines. We set our alarm really early this morning, to go out and check progress,and also to ear tag the lamb. The lamb is a little tup (boy). Becs has just looked upsome more things about what to expect. The lamb will be pretty slow and stationary for the first few days, feeding occasionally. Then more bouncy after about 3 days. As long as he is up on his feet and close to mum we have nothing to worry about.
Both Ewe and lamb are doing really well.
