I was gob smacked to see a Hare. Something never seen here nor Rabbits for that matter, after all the teraine here is rock and peat bog basically with a bit of woodland round the edges. It spent over and hour, first on the grass verge to our drive, then up the wall and onto the herbs. It seemed to spend its time either rolling about in the herbs or cleaning itself, seemed to snuggle down and have a sleep for a bit then ran acrosss the drive. Although I caught it on CCTV it was a long shot, but have clipped it to an image. I cannot make out if it is an ordinary Hare or a Mountain Hare.
Although the Mammal Society shows the distribution of the brown hare to include where you are, the ears look too short for it to be a brown hare.
I don't know enough to suggest whether it is a mountain hare(I could be wrong, but I'd be a bit surprised by it being so close to habitation) or a rabbit. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will be along.
What ever it is, it a good record of another visitor.
It's certainly not a Brown Hare. My gut feeling says it's a Rabbit.
I am in two minds it is just that its leg seem very long for a rabbit. I have been asking around apparently they did have rabbits up Tyndrum end of the Strath but have not seen any for a couple of years and the Mountain Farm Research estate opposit said they did have hares and some rabbits but again not seen for a couple of years. It did appear again the following night but stayed up on the upper ground around the poly tunnel. It is semi flat grass/wild meadow ground. But too much of a long view to get video or image. Another thing that has surprised me is it appearing in the night, been no sign of it during the day.
