The Hare is perhaps the only species completely at home in the open, short grazed grass.
We all keep a look out in the winter for the Accentors and the Hawfinch, but from time to time a rare vagrant turns up that mixes in with the Chaffinches, and is therefore my chosen bird of the week, the Brambling.
This week I am going to take a light-hearted look at my own collection of mishaps, from being electrocuted to head banging a hide door, from being frisked to causing panic on the beach.
