Spring Is In The Air


Brown Hare

Brent Goose with Canada Geese

Whooper Swan

A drive around Wykeham showed me that Spring has nearly arrived with Lapwings displaying and male Brown Hares boxing for their territories to find a perfect female to mate with. Another grey dull day with frequent rain showers hence the lack of sharpness and colour in the images. Also in the area was Sparrowhawk, Stonechat, Brent Goose, Greylag Goose, Canada Goose, Mute Swan, Whooper Swan, Red Legged Partridge, Pheasant, Reed Bunting, Yellowhammer and Kestrel.

Nice set of shots Steve.
The Hares appear a lot nearer than I have achieved to date.

Thanks Mike, I was very lucky with the Hares, got fairly close views but the weather/light was quite bad (you carn't have everything), will try again on a good day.
