Linnets & Teal

I saw a treeful of linnets (is that the collective noun for them <g>) along the long pads footpath this afternoon, looking very pretty in the glow of the setting sun. Also seven teal on the school pond – I hadn’t seen them there for a few weeks.

Hares in Fauna Field

Saw 2 hares in the Fauna field yesterday evening (31st March), between Aldcliffe Rd. and the hedge running behind the houses there. One of them approached quite close to the wall along by the road – wish I’d had my camera!

I notice they’re ploughing that field today. I wonder what affect that will have on them.
