Here's Hares!

Mountain hare

Went out on Ranger patrol today, up from Far Blacks, Grinah Stones, Bleaklow Stones, Near Bleaklow Stones then back down Near Blacks. The area at the top of the 3 Blacks (White Stones/Bleaklow Meadows) was swarming with mountain hares - I counted 25 in about 1 hour. One of the other Rangers in the Crowden area saw loads as well. There was snow on the ground 2 weeks ago, so they are in their pure white winter coats, so they stood out a mile. So much for them being rare!
