Brown Hare in North Cornwall, 13th March 2021.

This brown hare came bounding along the marsh path toward me today.

It kept stopping to sniff at every fallen bit of branch and twig.

It just goes to show how important scent is in their lives. Whether it was the scent of another hare or that of the local fox that also plies the same route I don't know but I'm guessing another hare as it's breeding time of the year.

It got closer and closer to me, (I was downwind and hidden), until I couldn't focus on it as it was too close!
