The White Hare.

Out walking on Knockanaffrin ridge today and I saw not one but two white hares, the attached picture shows the hare but it was taken with a phone camera so it is not David Attenborough standard. They were snow white with some small dark patches. It was a glorious day just the correct combination of warm sun and cool breeze to make the walk enjoyable, on the ridge a group of para gliders were flying of Knocksheegowna and they just seemed to hang in the air.

Tomorrow is the bog trot, here's to sore legs.

  1. Great to see the photo, I had seen a white hare in the Comeraghs back in the late 1970's, Though many people have tried to convince me since then that they don't exist. So big thanks for settling and old bet. Now to collect my winnings...
