HAZY said:I really need to be up at "Alan-O'clock" to catch up with the local hares but I blame it on them choosing to graze amongst the long grass in the pony paddock !
No reason to rush. Dawn comes along at a more respectable time later in the year and the hares will still be there. The grass might be a bit shorter after continuous nibbling too!
Nice photo in the meantime.

Probably doesn't want to venture too far until those gaps fill up It's also a long time for the sun to be out that far north!!!
One of the rare occasions when I've gone just a bit arty on a shot. Something I do more often in landscape but less so for wildlife. Even more surprisingly, I actually took it with that concept in mind. So ... a dreamy Gadwall

I thought that i had had a good afternoon when the local Osprey came in but then I got to spend an hour to watch this little star being fed by an even littler star. More to come when editing is all done but I thought you might like this for starters.

Great updates everyone, starting with a soaring (or should I say hovering GBBG) ! then a dreamy arty Gadwall that would make very nice wall art, followed by a very handsome male Bullfinch and then if that was enough treats a cracker of a capture with the Cuckoo being fed ….. is that by a Meadow Pipit ? - keep 'em coming folks !
