The Field - - Opening Shots Letters -

I was watching a red kite en­joy­ing its lunch on the ground when a hare ap­peared from nowhere at the gal­lop and smashed straight into the kite. The kite just spread its wings and didn’t seem un­duly dis­turbed. The hare then backed off 20yd or so and re­peated the per­for­mance twice more be­fore am­bling off. My as­sump­tion is that the kite’s lunch was the hare’s baby. I would not have be­lieved that a hare could act so bravely.
