Cornwall Park Scenery & Spring Lambs & other

Cornwall Park was gifted to Auckland and to the public in the early 1900s by Sir John Logan Campbell. It’s a huge area. It is part farm and part park. There are beef cattle, sheep and a few bantams. Other birds reside there, pheasants and Guinea Fowl.

Here are some photos I took. Quite a few new born lambs just born. There are also some calves being born. It’s advisable to keep your distance from the new borns as their Mums are very protective of them and will defend them. A mother cow can inflict quite a lot of damage.

 

Field in Cornwall Park

You will note the ewe and her lambs quietly grazing. The stone wall, that has been there since at least over 60 years ago. The Oak trees are there as well.

There are many stone walls like this built in Auckland and there are quite a few in central Auckland.

Spring lamb in Cornwall Park

Sometimes they are content to sit and smell the grass.

Its best not to come too close to the lambs as the lambs and mothers become very stressed and spend a lot of energy running away from you. Ewes often have a hard time feeding their young as it is, without more stress.

Cornwall Park Spring lamb eating

Sometimes they want to eat the grass, Mum is not too far away if they need milk. 

Later on a band is put over their tails and it drops off naturally. Part of keeping the sheep clean later on and promoting their health.

Twin Oak Drive walk

Here is the collection of spring blooms are the Oak trees are getting green leaves. Some of the Oak trees are English Oaks and others are European Oak trees. New Zealand Europeans settling in New Zealand were home sick for the land that they came from and brought them with them.
