Spot the cows on Epsom Common

EpsomCommonPlywoodcowIf you're visiting Epsom Common local nature reserve this summer, say hello to Dumfries, Douglas and Flora!

Each of these plywood cows, installed one in each grazed area, Horton Heath, Great Pasture and Rye Meadow, explain why due to the pandemic, the cattle can't come to graze the grassland areas this year like they usually do. Please look after our grazing areas by only walking across them so they remain special places for wildlife. The real cows will be back next year!

Thanks to our Countryside Team and the Lower Mole Partnership for this initiative.
