Getting reacquainted with some Red Polls at Pegsdon

When we sold three Red Poll heifers to the Wildlife Trut last summer, they went to Flitwick Moor to help keep their vegetation under control. We were told then that they would be spending the winter at Pegsdon Hills Nature reserve, but we haven’t had a chance to visit them since.

We heard (through some WT insiders I think) that catching them for the move to Pegsdon in the autumn, took quite a while. We can sympathise. Young heifers can be a pain – flighty, awkward and obstinate, and certainly tricky to get into a trailer.

This morning, having a bit of a lazy Sunday, we took a stroll up Pegsdon and there they were, looking fit, healthy and as though butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths. Actually it was freezing so the butter thing may have been deceptive.

Jane spent some time catching up about old times until our huffing teenage daughters persuaded us to move on.
