Today we went to Greenmount Hill Farm in Glenwherry to learn all about the important work they do there. We had a fabulous talk by Alex the gamekeeper who told us all about the different birds they have there and showed us traps they use. He let us listen to some bird sounds and have a look at the different equipment he uses in his job. We then headed up to the new shed which was filled with lots of sheep and lambs. Eileen told us all about the different breeds and information on their weights.
Next we got to look at the baby lambs and even got to pet them. A baby lamb weighs about 4 kilograms! They were very cute and snuggled into their mums.
Suddenly we were called to the other side of the farm and we all got to see a lamb being born! It was very quick and after a quick check over it was walking in no time! We learnt lots and lots today and want to say a huge thank-you to everyone who helped organise and run our session.
