Is she pregnant?

Above the railway one of the female goats had a kid at the beginning of March. Most of the time she stays on a steep bank surrounded by a dense expanse of gorse making it difficult for foxes to creep up on her kid. 

Meanwhile below the railway there is lots of expectancy (on my part at least) but still no kids. Yesterday I was alarmed to see an expectant nanny clambering over a barbed wire fence. Or have I got it wrong and she’s not pregnant?
