Billy Bull to the Rescue

Billy Bull was not with his cows when I walked through the riverside gate this afternoon; he was on guard duty at the top gate. He knows I use the top gate from the corral, so today I thought I would fool him. It took Billy about two minutes to realise I was amonst his girls. He ran down the ramp to investigate.

Cullum and Red Dog in Hoobrook Pasture.

Last year we improved Hoobrook Pasture, by removing most of the invasive trees and scrub. We were rewarded with an invasion of Himalayan balsam early this year. Although the cattle ate the balsam, my camera traps recorded minimal animal activity, until now: 40 minutes of fox and badger activity was recorded on Thursday night/Friday morning.
