Lovely additions Alan; yesterday I tried to locate the local hares and found three in different areas, however, the minute they see a human from quarter mile away they bolt !!! these should be on bad pics thread but probably the only hare shots I'll ever get at this rate lol
(hard cropped shots and too far away to have sharp focus)
It had already spotted me way back up the lane ………...
and then the inevitable ! …………. run rabbit hare run ………...
I spotted this one on the corner of two lanes and crept up slowly but suddenly a car appeared from right hand side and the hare shot off into the cornfield lol
this is all I managed to get as it grazed on the lush grass/weeds
Sigh ! maybe next time !!

A couple more pics from yesterday;
juvenile Pied Wagtail
very distant shot of a Hare and a Crow - must be a story there somewhere !
found another hare shot - do they ever stand still for more than 2 seconds ? lol
equally distant shot of a common buzzard perched up
male Common Darter ?
Starlings waiting for the non existent polo match to start LOL
one of the juvenile starlings keeping an eye on me and the camera !
In reply to HAZY:
At least you're getting some hares, even at a distance and who won't stay still, as I'm not seeing many at all

I'm thinking Wood Sandpiper, but the bill seems a bit too long. :-)

Could be one of the Strawbills.

First time I've managed to find a Spotted Flycatcher locally. Just long distance, heavily cropped record shots.
This particular part of the moors is notorious as a migrant stopover, so I guess it's on the way back to Africa from somewhere
