Hares at RSPB Frieston Shore

On Saturday I visited RSPB Frieston Shore, near Boston in Lincolnshire. It turns out to be an excellent place to see hares! I'm very pleased to have been able to find a good spot to photograph these animals, as I spent (wasted!) a lot of time searching for them near Stockport last year, with no success.

Added to that, it was a clear sunny day, and I found a group of 6 hares within photographing distance, just about an hour before sunset. After months of gray skies and rain, perhaps my luck is changing :-)

I did see a couple of hares boxing, but it was just a brief episode. I'd like to visit again next weekend if possible to see if I can get something better than this next shot.

  1. Amazing photos. You must be thrilled with these. I have only really seen Hares near the east coast in Yorkshire. Such a spectacle.
