It`s that time of year again!
The weather has warmed up and that means that for Pip, our Collie dog, with his amazingly thick coat, it`s time to get clipped out for Summer.
Look what we found when out for a walk. This baby hare was taking it`s first steps in the lonning.
It is likely that the baby hare`s Mother would have left it in a safe place under the hedge and it`s also probable that it`s siblings will also be close by. The Mother splits them up to avoid predators like foxes taking all of her babies.
Couldn`t resist a little hold before we left the little hare in its place in the grass verge under the hedge.
