While walking along the path between Stantway and Combe Wood Lane earlier this week I noticed a number of odd prints in the mud. As it is not a bridle way and there is no gate only a stile at the end there is no easy way out of the path for large animals.
I tried googling some images of animal prints and thought it might have been from a cow but this seemed very odd as recently there had only been sheep in the fields.and there was no sign of any cattle.
The next morning was a bit misty as as usual I had my binoculars with me and was scanning around for any wildlife when. I saw , emerging from the gateway across the field this cow, happily consorting with the sheep!
