The alpacas guarding baby lambs

Watch Nel's report

A farm in Berkshire has started using alpacas to protect their newborn lambs.

Now spring has arrived, lambing season is well underway but lambs are often at threat from predators like foxes at this time of year.

The farmers in Wokingham wanted to make sure their lambs were protected so they brought in alpacas Storm, Cloud, Nimbus and Cirrus.

It was Australian farmers who first realised alpacas were very protective and started using them on their farms.
