Lynx, Lego and Lucas

Lynx, Lego and Lucas are three young bullocks who are now resident at Wood Lane Heath for the summer. No frolicking romantic couple like last year’s Murray and Jessie!
Alexandra and Hyacinth
Alexandra and Hyacinth are doing a sterling job in Coldstream Marsh, eating the scrub and young tree growth. This means that the view to the pond will be maintained and will save hours of labour in keeping the undergrowth down in the Marsh. Hopefully they will stay away from any rare wild flowers that may pop their heads up after the scrap last year.
Please do not feed the cattle, although they are not nearly as demanding or plaintive as the ponies were! The grazing scheme has been a great success over the past few years and it is always a joy to see our summer visitors.
Update: The cattle left Fleet Pond in mid-September to return to their owners.
