DentBainbridge

The River Bain at Bainbridge, which at just 2.5 miles long is claimed to be the shortest river in England.  Its source is Semerwater – itself the largest (but still rather unimpressive!) natural lake in North Yorkshire.

DentLambs DentLambsDuck

Spring lambs.  Thanks to watching too much Lambing Live, I then knew that most lambs were born as twins.  Note the discreet duck in the background of the last picture!
