HUNDREDS of lambs are expected to be born in the next few weeks at a South Derbyshire tourist attraction.
Bouncing baby lambs have already started to make an appearance at Calke Abbey, in Ticknall.
Visitors will also be able to get up close and personal with the newly born animals in the lambing marquee which will be the abbey until Saturday, April 6.
Philip Bittner, visitor experience manager for Calke Abbey, said more than 450 lambs are expected to be born from now until the beginning of April.
He said:“Everyone loves this time of year and it’s a great way to get our new season off to the best start possible.
“Forget the Easter bunny, the Easter lamb is much more entertaining.
“So put your wellies on and take a muddy mooch to the lambing tent to see them gamble and frolic.”
Lambs were introduced to Calke Abbey’s 600 acres of historic parkland during the 18th century.
