Cattle leave the island

Today we spent the morning loading the cattle up before they returned back to their farm near Lowick. They have now left the island and what a great job they've done grazing the dune grassland and creating bare ground.
Putting up hurdles for the cattle pen.
In the pen.

Keeping an eye on the cattle before they are loaded up for transport.

The last load of cattle back to the farm after their few months stay on Lindisfarne NNR.  
 It's been great having them on the Reserve and will be a real miss from the dunes..... until next autumn.
