Brown Hare - Cornwall

Hares are ever so much in decline sadly due to hunting and farming practices along with change of land use, I was lucky to have seen this beauty on a walk one summers evening in 2018 in Cornwall. If you are lucky enough to see a hare or hares please contact South-West Action For Hares (SWAFH)as they are doing a survey in Cornwall and Devon. SWAFH encourage farms signed up to the Natural England scheme which favour hares. Uncultivated field margins are a management option which provides hares with the wild forage they prefer to cultivated plants and cover to rear their young.
