Yesterday was officially the first day of Spring, and working outside in the sun all day it certainly felt like it. Bees were buzzing around and the sky was a wonderful blue.
Today we were treated to sunshine yet again and, with our fingers crossed, traveled to a nearby farm that is said to be a reliable site for Little Owls. Unfortunately this was about our sixth visit and we still have not seen them. Never mind, one day! A nice surprise however was in store for us as we drove down the lane back towards the main road. Before we reached the road we passed a green field when Mum suddenly spotted something out amongst the crop. A brown Hare, the original Easter Bunny. A wonderful sight! The Hare was feeding on the growing shoots and seemed fairly un-bothered about the car's presence. We watch for a few minutes until the animal lopped slowly away into the long grass and hedge at the edge of the field.
