SPRING might be long gone, but that hasn’t stopped a flood of new arrivals at a Cotswolds farm.

Butts Farm Rare Breeds in South Cerney has seen an unexpected influx of baby animals being born in the past few weeks – including 10 pesky piglets and a family of dopey ducklings.

Farm owner Judy Hancox said it was unusual to see so many births at this time of year, but the recent unusual weather is likely to have had an impact on it.
