Hares used to be more of a regular sight in the Worcestershire countryside than they seem to be now; I remember seeing far more as a child. Happily, this is not so in Suffolk where a friend of mine lives by fields full of them. On walks by her house, you can’t move for several breaking cover and bounding away. If I stand still, I can usually make out a few hiding in the grass; they hold their heads slightly up, alert and stone-still. I feel like I can almost see the energy in them more when they are like this, than when they run. They are strong, lithe and fast creatures and I love them.
