I saw this Brown Hare while at Cley in Norfolk. It spent a good time chasing around the surrounding fields. Nothing unusual you'd think about that, but then it did something I've never seen a Hare do before. It got into the water and swam from one side to the other. It really shocked me, and had me watching open mouthed.
Not where you'd usually expect to see a Brown Hare.
This Stoat came back to see if I was really watching him. I sure was, and I knew he'd pop his head back up.
I have never seen a hare or rabbit swim, that is odd. The Stoat is a cute critter. Great collection of photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend!
The brown hare is really great!ReplyDelete
I also looked at your photos with open mouth! Is that really a hare? I really didn't know they can swim!
Nature can always surprise us!
Beautiful pictures! Thank you!
These are beautiful photos Adam.ReplyDelete
I didn't know they could swim either, learned something again.
Watch out and stay healthy.
I love seeing the hare in action! And what a great shot of the stoat!ReplyDelete
Nice photos! Now we all long for spring!ReplyDelete
I've never seen a rabbit swimming! He looks a bit startled!ReplyDelete
Never saw a hare swim! Look forwards to spring now. Maybe the birds and animals do too, but they will be very busy!ReplyDelete
interesting wildlife today. A swimming hare? Never heard of it but you have proof.ReplyDelete
The Stoat seem to be a very curious one :)
Unbelievable! I didn't realize that they could swim! That stoat is so cute!(💖 your photos).ReplyDelete
A Stoat...well I never! I didn't even know there was such a thing but it is SO cute! I'm going to search for it to learn more! I love it!ReplyDelete
I too have never heard of a hate swimming! Thanks for sharing this post AdamReplyDelete

Typo alert: hareDelete
I saw the first photo and thought that is one funny looking bird! I didn't know rabbits swam but I don't know lots of things about wildlife. I have read about stoats and I'm not sure I've ever seen a photo before. Wonder if they are called something else or are not here in US? Just googled and they are weasels - well only seen photos of weasels too!ReplyDelete
Love the stoat! I don't believe we have them here. Do folks ever make pets of them? They remind me of ferrets.ReplyDelete

Had no idea a hare could swim! Interesting. Love how the stoat is looking right at you. Hope your new week is off to a great start!ReplyDelete
Along with everyone else I've never seen a hare or a rabbit swimming.ReplyDelete
That hare shot is exceptional. Excellent work. You should enter it into a competitionReplyDelete
I've never seen a brown hare before. Really great photos! Thank you!ReplyDelete
I have never seen a stoat before.ReplyDelete
Worth a Thousand Words
