Long Distance Hare and other photos

There weren't really any other surprises today, but I did find time to watch the yellowhammers which were flocking with the local sparrows.
In another sign of the prospect of summer, a lone house martin flew overhead. The shot's not up to much, but it's a way of recording the first martin of the year... just a few days after the first swallow.
For the rest, I'll leave it to the goslings. There is still only the pair, but they are being well protected. A phalanx of greylags lined the bank keeping a watchful eye.
And out on the water the familiar white goose is once again acting as protector-in-chief to the young.
Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.
