I like 'em too.I love brown hares...
Nice accurate posting.I love brown hares – if I ever need a totem, they would be it.
As a kid I would go to Rye Harbour and just sit with my back to the old tank traps and watch the hares in Springtime going mad,they'd come right up to you if stayed still.As he passed I smiled, and felt compelled to say to him "Good morning, Mr. Hare!" He just paused for a heartbeat, gave me a quizzical look and ambled off.
I remember as a wee crumbsnatcher walking one wild autumn afternoon with my grandad and his brother in law. We were up by a small reservoir - a place which had a slightly unsettling atmosphere at the best of times, not helped by the low frequency hum from the machinery in the pump house and the wind whistling through the ragged woods that surrounded it....I almost trod on one once on another walk. It was in a shallow scrape in the ground & I never saw it until it shot off at a rate of knots from almost under my foot...

The RSPB said the bird hatched and fledged in southern Europe last year, but had "wandered up" to the Peak District for the summer.
Mr Lowen said he saw "a huge bird surrounded by crows", and "pulled over and took a photo".

A large elephant seal that took a wrong turn and ended up wandering the streets of a Chilean town was guided back to the water by a group of police, navy officers and concerned locals.
Residents of Puerto Cisnes said they sometimes spot elephant seals far out in the water, but it came as a shock to see one wandering down the middle of a street several blocks from the shore. Witnesses said the seal was not acting aggressively, but appeared confused and frightened. ...
Police, navy officers and neighbors used black tarps to get the large animal to turn around and head back toward the water. ...
My first thought was crikey that's a big snail.Now, this looks pretty damned Fortean at face value ...

Vigo was also sighted in and around Peterborough. What on Earth makes a bird accustomed to mountains make a stop over at a town on the edge of the Fens?
When it was spotted in the Peak District in July it was speculated it may've been caught in a storm & blown away from it's home in the Alps but that seems a bit unlikely.Vigo was also sighted in and around Peterborough. What on Earth makes a bird accustomed to mountains make a stop over at a town on the edge of the Fens?
The Vulture conservancy now have a couple of her feathers so we should at some point understand her a little better. It should also be noted that they are keeping a close eye on her movements and the threat each one makes to her. It is considered that her current location can provide food and shelter with the main threat to her being traffic and turbines.

A bid to follow the herd turned out badly for a lone cow that got stuck on a trampoline in rural Victoria overnight.
The drama unfolded when a mob of about 40 cows went on a run in the dead of night in South Gippsland.
The herd was rounded up after a truck driver saw cattle in the middle of the road and doorknocked the nearest house.
Neighbours were woken to find cows scattered in their yards, and the mob was guided home.
But when dairy farmer Kay Laing did a second check of her yard to be extra sure, she found a black and white cow stuck on her in-ground trampoline. ...
“I would love to have seen her get on. I’m sure she must have been thinking, ‘What the hell?’ Anyway she ended up just plonking down and just sat.
“Thank God it was night time and she couldn’t see either because I’m tipping she would’ve been pretty terrified.”
Her neighbour brought his tractor around and, with some chains and a hoist, got the cow on solid ground.
“She was just fine, we lifted her off and then she walked home, maybe a kilometre and a half.
“We were back in bed by 3.30am.” ...
