Hampshire Hairy

Surprisingly a rare species here in Hampshire. I normally have to go to Somerset to get my fill, and had the weather been favourable we would’ve gone this weekend. So we chose the only likely place close to home (there were none last year) which didn’t involve an entry fee.

I first saw a couple here a week ago, but no chance of a shot. Yesterday it was ridiculously windy, and this male rose in front of me but didn’t choose to move far, unlike the mating pair I’d disturbed earlier…

So a result, and despite the busy background (his choice) we were chuffed to bits to find a willing subject on our local patch.
