Message from Henry: Cowpat

April 13, 2022

Walking up a steep hillside meadow in Warwickshire. Cows grazing near the beech wood on the other side of the field. In front of me, half of a cowpat  has an oily blue metallic sheen on it. The other half is dull brown.

As I step closer, the oily sheen breaks into hundreds of points that lift off and buzz away in sudden little cloud, revealing the same dull brown beneath them.

They were flies – fat, lustrous, healthy English flies, chubby as bulldogs, completely covering one half of the cowpat.
