  Sneem Wildlife & Nature - Hares
We have had hares in the garden since day one and they have become friends with us. We have 2 regulars, Harriet and Levi.

They are Irish hares which are different to the English Brown Hare, and more closly related to the mountain hare, indeed thier coats go almost white in winter.

At first Harriet used to bring the young leverett (Levi) down the drive and to the feeder area. Later on Levi would turn up on his own and Harriet is now rarely seen. During the summer you could sit on a rock, only meters away from levi and watch him eat. He likes variety, rarley eating the same plant for more than a few minutes before changing to something else.

Julie often spends time with Levi and has taken some great photos of him, please take time to check out her gallery of hare pictures on the link below:

I hope you enjoy looking at Levi as much as we do.
