Brown Hare Hailstorm
Brown hare photographed during a severe hailstorm in the Peak District National Park. As much as it inconveniences us, the unpredictable weather has a severe impact on the wildlife,especially when they are starting to breed and nest. This brown hare looked as though he was enjoying the hail storm almost as much as me, you can literally see them bouncing off his fur!
About the Brown Hare:
The Brown Hare is the UK’s fastest land mammal, able to reach speeds of up to 45 mph. Hares are not actually native to Britain but were in fact introduced by the Romans. Unlike their cousin the rabbit, hares do not use burrows, instead making a shallow depression in the ground known as a form. Widespread in mainland Britain, hares are mainly found on open farmland and rough grazing pastures on low ground, replaced by the native mountain hare in upland areas of Scotland and central England.
