The three cows that had been grazing in Wanstead Park since October were removed last month.

“Our wonderful Longhorns have now moved on to pastures new, rejoining the rest of our 180-strong herd in Epping Forest. I know how much joy they brought to visitors whilst also supporting important conservation efforts. They will be back later in the year,” said Benjamin Murphy, Chairman of the Epping Forest and Commons Committee.

Grazing improves biodiversity by removing course vegetation from the acid grassland.
