"Oh bullocks! I'm gonna die before they do"
"Oh bullocks! I'm gonna die before they do"
This herd of cattle north of Admiral's Farm, Ongar Hill had reluctantly moved onto the salt marsh of The Wash as I walked past them.

I'm not sure what the two blanked-off water pipes are for coming out of the sea bank but I quickly got behind them as the cattle came running up the bank towards me and only stopped a couple of yards short of the pipes. The chances are that they associated a person on the bank as time to be let into the adjacent cattle shed and crew yard for some feed, see LinkExternal link but for a few moments I had visions of being killed by a cattle stampede miles from civilization.

At this point my plans changed and instead of continuing along the sea bank to the island off the coast, see LinkExternal link I backtracked to the car park at Ongar Hill and home for a change of pants.

A few months later I came across yet another herd of cattle blocking a footpath on The Nene Way, see LinkExternal link
