Lambing at Lackham Farm, Chippenham, Wiltshire

On March 11th 2012, the husband and I took the children to Lackham Farm at the college for the first of their two annual lambing weekends. We had not been before but I had wanted to for several years.

Sewerby Hall and Gardens, Bridlington, East Yorkshire

Today we visited Sewerby Hall and Gardens just to the north of Bridlington in East Yorkshire. This is a council-owned stately home with a long history over-looking the North Sea. The grounds are huge and incorporate animal paddocks, woodland walks, walled gardens and a pitch and putt golf course. 
 
There is a land train from Bridlington promenade, and a car park on site (though it can get full in the summer). Today, early in November, it was idyllic – lots of orange foliage, and hardly any visitors.

Natureland Seal Sanctuary, Skegness, Lincolnshire

Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness is somewhere I remember visiting as a child on one of our many Skegness holidays. We took our children there last year, and it’s as popular as ever.
 
First of all there are numerous seals and sealions. Most are ones that have been found washed up on the shores of Lincolnshire or have been sent from other seal sanctuaries in the UK. There are scheduled feeding times throughout the day where you can hear a talk about the seals and get to see them catch fish to eat. There is also a separate penguin pool.
