Keep your eyes peeled if you're walking along that lovely footpath just inside the hedge between Upper and Lower Chicksgrove (TIS 62/SM34) as these Brown hares and the splendid Great Green Bush Cricket, whose usual habitat is the Dorset coast, have been spotted nearby.
You're reminded also to report any dead hares you may see, as a virus is reported to be spreading in this direction. If you find a freshly dead hare that hasn’t been a road kill, please take a photo with a phone if you are carrying one and email D.Bell@uea.ac.uk with the location. If you are able to double bin-bag it for them to collect to mortem that would be be even better. But don't let this spoil your walk!!
