The main habitat of the brown hare is in open fields, farmland and surrounding woodland. Unlike rabbits, hares do not dig and burrow, but instead, live their whole lives above ground. They do not have a particular home but shelter in 'forms', which are shallow depressions in the ground or grass. They will sleep in any suitable place, continually moving from one place to another. After seeing my first brown hare while away in the Lake District I felt inspired to take up pen and paintbrush and capture the captivating and elusive character of these wonderful wild animals.
