EURO­PEAN HARE

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Mouth -

Euro­pean – or Brown – Hares are such an es­tab­lished sight in open Bri­tish coun­try­side that one might read­ily as­sume that they are both na­tive and com­mon. Nei­ther tran­spires to be true. Hares were in­tro­duced dur­ing the Iron Age. Their mat­ing sea­son peaks this month, so ex­pect to see ir­ri­tated fe­males box­ing away the un­wanted at­ten­tions of males!
