Plantation Hare

The Hare reported previously (presumably the same animal) was by the side of the footpath at Ogden Back Lane this afternoon at approx 1340 hrs. I only noticed it when it decided to run so it must have been just 3/4 metres away from me in the grass.

Calderdale Wildlife: Plantation Hare

In the trees at Ogden Res itself, a Grey Tree Rat (Squirrel) was busy trying to raid a Tit species nest in one of the green boxes. It could only get it's nose in and gave up - naturally just as I had my camera almost primed. Judging by the two Great Tits that were acting up nearby, the box must have been their vessel of species continuity.
