7th October: Cattle arrive

Today, the NNR team welcomed 30 cattle to the Reserve to carry out their yearly task of grazing the dunes of Holy Island.

Settling in

The cattle are checked daily by Reserve staff and volunteers, making sure they are settled among the dunes. The cattle are selected for their calm temperament but if you are visiting the Reserve, please be aware the cows are present and if you have dogs keep them on a lead. There are signs at access points to the Reserve with more information about the livestock.
