Lambcam is brought to you by a small but dedicated team. Once things get going there are experienced staff on hand during the day and through the night. As well as the area you can see on camera, there are separate nursery sheds for the ewes and their lambs. The team will always assess the needs of the whole flock and prioritise the most vulnerable. A very sick newborn lamb that needs tube feeding may be taking precedence over a ewe in labour. Remember that there may be a staff member just out of shot watching on.

Good evening Charlotte & Matthew. Thank you for your message - great to hear that you enjoyed your visit to St Fagans today and got to see a live birth in person! I'll make sure your kind words are passed on to Emma and the team as well.
Approximately T-minus 50 weeks to go until next year...?!

We love lamb cam! ? ? 
For at least the last 6 years we have watched it intently and always visit St Fagans around my birthday to see if we can catch a birth in real life. Today we were lucky enough to witness black twins entering the world, the ewe was a first time Mam and had been labouring for a long time so was assisted by the shepherdess and shepherd. We meet them every year and they are always very friendly and explain what they are doing and why, more important to note is they are always so caring and kind towards the animals - it really is a joy to witness. Diolch yn fawr lamb cam! Already counting down the weeks until next year ?

New layout

Some eagle-eyed viewers will have spotted that we had a little change around yesterday. The remaining ewes expecting single lambs have been moved to the top end of the large lambing shed. The remaining ewes expecting twins are now in the middle + bottom pens, marked with 1 green dot on their backs. The smaller shed across the yard will now be used as one of the large group bonding pens - so we'll have some lovely lambs to watch all day long!

Hello Chess. Both twins were fine for the first hour or so. However, it looks like one of them had thick gunk in his belly and we have unfortunately just lost him.
