The temperature went up by 10 degrees today. The tadpoles in my pond were wriggling again. But we had a westerly gale making any kind of birding not very enjoyable. I tried to survey some corn buntings but they were keeping their heads down. When scanning the early season fields I can’t help but see hares. There are one or two in almost every field at the moment which is great to see. I have been seeing a bit of mad March hare action in the last few weeks with hares chasing and boxing at each other. I saw a pair mating yesterday. A speedy affair as you might imagine.

A brown hare yesterday at Old Barns doing what it does best
