Mad March Marsh Harrier with Hare


Over the weekend, Amy and I set out in search of Short-eared Owls, but stumbled upon a fascinating encounter with a female Marsh Harrier instead. It appeared captivated by the local Hares, making an incredible spectacle to witness their interaction. Truly an ambitious hunt for the Marsh Harrier!

Mad as a March Hare

Yesterday was truly remarkable, filled with unforgettable encounters with our local wildlife. The early morning light cast a magical glow out on the Hares during my fenland drive, offering a breath-taking sight. It's incredible how abundant they were; this time of year sees the fields teeming with courting Hares, engaging in liviely chases and the occasional boxing - truly as 'mad as a march hare'!
