Cows not Cowes!!

Cows 1

These comical photos were sent to the Pilot Magazine by Jean Buckpitt, a London pilot, whose friend Justin Denham, who took the photos,
is a pilot on the River Lune. The berth at Glasson dock is a NAABSA berth where the cows are able to gain entrance from the local field. Justin believes that the cows come off the fields to get salt from the ship’s sides, like a salt or mineral lick. How this fits in with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code is anyone’s guess!
