The Shorefield today - "the boys dung good"

These are some views of the Shorefield shortly after we moved the bullocks.
It would be interesting to calculate the tonnage of herbage eaten by the five bullocks during their stay - and the tonnage of dung left behind.  Doubtless someone will have done a pHD....
We did not expect them to be so enthusiastic about eating willow shoots - this goat willow has been neatly clipped.


There are lots of lovely little nooks and crannies that have escaped the grazing - here Celandines, Dog Violets and a variety of mosses and lichens make up a rich herbage.
