Mountain Hare on the Run

04/04/2022
My Cairngorms Birds and Mammals Photography Tour enjoyed mountain hares, leaping squirrels and lekking black grouse. We were able to approach some of the hares to within a few metres, whilst this one gave us an action shot as it bounded across our field of view. In the first week of April it was in the process of moulting from white winter to brown summer pelage.
