I confess to having a bit of an obsession with Brown Hares. For the last few years I've been watching and photographing a number of groups of hares in Bucks. This year (so far) I just don't seem to have been in the right place at the right time for a decent photo of them boxing. The following photos have been the best action shots this year but the hares were quite some distance, the weather was grey and miserable and then someone had to go and put a huge telegraph pole in one pic. I shan't give up though, there's always next Spring! More importantly though, the numbers in all but one of the groups have decreased this year so I hope it isn't a sign that there soon won't be any hares left to watch. Has anyone else noticed a decrease or increase in their local hare population?
