Two of the three longhorn cattle grazing in Wanstead Park are to remain in place until mid-October.

The extension follows a wet summer, which has resulted in more lush grass for Nina, Nutty and Goose, who have been performing their job as manual mowing machines since 10 August. Seven-year-old Nutty left the park last month as she is due to give birth in November.

“We would like to thank the volunteers and the Friends of Wanstead Parklands for their support in this project,” said a City of London spokesperson.
