I’ve spent a few hours this weekend down on the Sirhowy River, Trying to get some decent stuff on the Dippers that are on most of the local rivers in the area. This morning after about three hours tucked under one of the banks i managed to get something, but the weather wasn’t co-opperating and dead legs and very cold rain showers put an end to the fun , so i went off in search of Snipe , a friend told me he knew a place where it was knee deep in them !!! – to be continued.

After trying to catch the hares boxing early in the morning – with no success . Late afternoon was my next best chance to see if anything was going to happen, as it was only two separate hares turned up , the first was way out in the middle of a field of winter wheat , it could hear the camera’s shutter going even there , constantly looking across to where we were in the pickup.What happened next really surprised me , the hare looked our way and sprang up running directly towards us , only veering away yards from the vehicle.
