It feels like spring is finally upon us, what with the calm wind, the sunshine and God's creatures rearing their young. Two calves and two goslings have come to join us on Papa Stronsay so far. We hope that by God's grace there will be plenty more to come as the spring weeks roll onwards into summer.
This calf is two days old. It always amazes me how fast they are up and going!
The goslings are one and two days old.
Despite their small size, the new arrivals have quickly made themselves a part of the group!
