Hares and Deer, and a Woodpecker

Thursday 5th April 2007

I photographed these two Brown Hares this evening near the old Chedworth airfield. I was really looking for owls, but mammals were the main interst. In addition to the Hares, 22 Fallow Deer and a Fox were on the old airfield. Earlier, in the garden, a male Great Spotted Woodpecker was feeding on peanuts. This bird has been a regular visitor for the past few months, although I hadn't seen him for little while. The photo below was taken in January. The other photo is of two of the Fallow Deer taken in the fading light this evening (photos: Paul Masters)
