Basking Hares, Hingham
Subject: Brown Hares enjoying the spring sunshine. Dimensions (inches): 20 x 16 Medium: Mixed media on canvasboard. Description: Two Brown Hares soak up some late afternoon sunshine in the shelter of a spring hedgerow in Norfolk, England. These animals were regularly present in the same spot, allowing plenty of time to make sketches with the aid of a telescope. Just over a hundred years ago there were around four million Brown Hares in Britain. Since then their numbers have fallen to less than ten percent of this, largely as a result of habitat loss and changes in farming practices. As a result the Brown Hare is now a Priority Species under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.
