Yesterday, Karen and I went to the Slimbridge Wetland Centre. We visited all the fantastic hides that they have there and put our binoculars to good use. There were hundreds and thousands of these of all shapes and sizes to see.














But just as interestingly, they had over sixty English Longhorn cattle doing some conservation  grazing. We use to keep this breed but not quite in the same numbers. They looked magnificent. The weather was a little misty, so apologies for the picture quality.

As said great photos, we didn't know there was an 'English long horn cattle' breed so thank you for that
