March Madness

A bit of sun has brought out the butterflies on our usual circuit of Cissbury Ring and the Monarch’s Way, as well as our first Bee Flies of the year, including a cooperative one at home.  We also had a total of 11 Wheatears, although none came close enough for a worthwhile photo.  Best of all was a field with five Hares in, three of which were spooked by the farmer moving some sheep and ran right past us.  Once they had got further away from us they settled down and did a little bit of boxing, although too far away for any photographs.
