We managed to get the new Lake camera working this afternoon. I even put it on webcam two, but for for some reason it stopped working. I think that I may know what the problem is, and as long as I can get a few jobs finished early tomorrow I will try to get it going.

We have located it on a current telegraph pole along the Farm drive. We may get a bit of grief from BT, we will just have to wait and see. The camera is very well situated overlooking the Lake. We are able to get right into the island to watch the Goose on her nest. Yes she is nesting and by the look over the past couple of days she is incubating the eggs. The Gander quite often sits with the Goose on the island. We have never seen that before on the Lake. They also use the ramp to get on and off of the island. Hopefully you will be able to see it tomorrow. The new camera is also able to see the Pond that is out of view of the current Lake camera, just behind the Lake. The new camera will also be a good security camera for the Farm, as we are able to see most of our drive. I think that it is going to be an interesting webcam.

An Electrician who was putting the electric to the new camera saw one of the Lambs in the stream by the side of the Lake. How it got there we will never know. It is the Minty’s Lamb, the last Lamb that was born. If the Electrician had not seen it in the stream it would now be dead. As it is the Lamb is not very well and we are unsure if it will survive. We have had to bring it into the Farm House to keep it warm and to dry it out. Minty has been calling for it. If it does survive I am not sure if Minty will accept it back.

Thornton is doing very well. With us putting him on to the Ewe when we found him, to hopefully get some colostrum must have worked. Bottle feeding him is making him grow a little quicker than his twin. Tass and Kye are intrigued by Thornton and wont leave him alone, but the Lamb is managing. We wouldn’t leave Thornton on his own with the dogs as we are sure that they would finish up killing him, whilst what they would think as playing.
