Brown Hares In The Derbyshire Dales Reviews
A gorgeous book full of stunning images and love for brown hares and the countryside in which they exist. I had been been meaning to get round to reading this book when Christine accompanied the Whistlestop (Matlock Bath) Watch Group of the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust (for whose financial benefit the book was written) for our March farm walk. We were never likely to see hares on a very bright mid-morning with umpteen children from 3 or 4 upwards and their possibly even more excited adults. We did however find a surprising amount of hare predator poo and hair.Christine gave an absolutely captivating talk as we lounged on a sunny bank, successfully communicating a sense of awe at the tough lives hares live, even at the best of times which these are not. Much of this and more is in the book. She also writes about the place hares have in culture and a big part of the book looks at the way land management for hares benefits many species. I've read my share of calls to arms on biodiversity but I think this was the first to highlight soil protozoa and nematodes and the impact of 'sterilising' cow manure. Considerable space is given to the words of local farmers and the book is no 'goodies versus baddies' simplistic stuff. It was salutary to read their opinions that foot and mouth had been very good for wildlife because the public were denied access to the countryside - and yet Christine points out that as most people don't get to see hares, it is harder to get them to push for their preservation.But this lovely book with its skilled photography does some way to making up for that.
