We'll meet again and I know where!
Here's another round of photographs of Swaledale sent to me by Pry House Farm and Hillcrest holiday cottage guests. I hope you enjoy looking at them and identifying where they are taken from. Thanks to everyone who has taken part. If anyone else has any please do send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Three photos of the River Swale. I'm sure you will recognise the location of the first two but the last one isn't Wainswath but much further down river, Orgate Force at Marske.
Can you spot Hillcrest Cottage?
To keep you up to date with what is happening on the farm I will finish with a few lambing time photos. The sheep have lambed very well and as you can see we have a lot of ewes and lambs on home field. Every day they get supplementary feed in the form of sugar beet which they love! When its finished all those lambs have to pair up with the right mothers! The bleating / bonding noise that the lamb heard as its mother licked it dry at birth and the bleat the lamb returned is unique to each mother and lamb. Even in a large crowd they recognise each other - its amazing to watch.
Spot the odd ones out!
The Herdy lambs and the Swaledale lambs all play, race and chase together.
We pride ourselves on providing super comfy beds Pry House Farm B&B but the lambs go one better when they snuggle up in a bed of sweet meadow hay!
I hope you have had fun taking a trip round Swaledale from your armchair.
Stay safe and well 'till we meet again.
