A Common Sight

As I’ve mentioned before, during the Summer we share Midsummer Common with a herd of CamCattle. They’re a friendly lot, and today a little group of them passed by Willow‘s mooring. Lyra regards them with curiosity rather than fear, but stays well clear of their big hooves!

They are Red Poll, one of East Anglia’s oldest breeds, and are a lovely chestnut colour. They taste delicious in burgers too, and it’s nice to know exactly where the meat has come from, even if their diet is supplemented by whatever they find lying about on the Common so that they can’t be certified organic!
