'Cheeky' hare pokes tongue out at photographers

'Cheeky' hare pokes tongue out at photographers

This "cheeky" hare poked his tongue at nature reserve visitors as they took photographs of him trying to woo a mate.

Last Updated: 12:22PM BST 17 Apr 2009



The brown hare population in the UK has been in decline since the 1960s Photo: PA

The usually reclusive brown hare was spotted by tourists on safari at Slimbridge Wetlands Centre, in Gloucestershire.

As photographers poised to snap the pair engaged in their celebrated "boxing" ritual, the male showed just what he thought of their nosiness.

Reserve warden James Lees, who took the photo, said: "The two hares we spotted were putting on a brilliant display of their famous boxing ritual and generally haring about the fields.

"And then one of them spotted us watching them and poked his tongue out at us. Hares are notoriously shy and have been unusually difficult to see at this time of year, so I wonder if he was a bit cross we'd finally found him and his mate."

The photograph is even more impressive as brown hares make very fast getaways – often reaching 45mph as they outmanoeuvre predators.

In spring, they can be seen engaged in the "boxing", which is often thought to be courtship but is actually females fighting off lustful males.

The brown hare population in the UK has been in decline since the 1960s and wildlife reserves such as Slimbridge provide important space for them in the countryside.

More evidence of spring was spotted on the reserve this week with a migration of 3,000 swallows flying through yesterday.
