On Sunday Limpy and I celebrated the beautiful post-Beast weather by heading out into the countryside to see what was about. Happily, the hares had had the same idea:
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

In reply to i love robins:
I remember walking over fields with 2 cairn terriers both on long extending leads, and suddenly coming upon a couple of hares that darted off into the distance, closely followed by 2 terriers and my right arm once the leads reached maximum extension. Oh the joys of dog walking lol
Lot to learn
Lovely photos Clare, and what a brilliant way to celebrate post beast weather.
Now I've just started retirement, hopefully I'll get to se boxing hares, once we're out of lockdown....
