It’s Lambing Time

Just a quick reminder to all dog walkers that it’s that time of year again when lots of little lambs are being born. Great Torts and Little Torts fields (behind Toft’s Close/St Andrews lane) are currently full of expectant sheep – so please watch out. Pregnant ewes and new-born lambs are extremely vulnerable.

Dogs running loose can cause a great deal of distress which can cause miscarriages, injuries or separating lambs from their mothers putting them at risk of starvation or exposure.

Even well-behaved dogs on leads can be disturbing to ewes and lambs so we would urge dog owners to take extra care during this time.
