On Chimney Rock last Saturday, I noticed she had turned into a hare - and other than a goat or two, my first sighting of an indigenous quadruped on the Mournes in my 10 odd years exploring them. Strange, but the Mournes are quite devoid of serious fauna (pick and mix syntax?). At a fairly confident estimate across the whole range (above the treeline) I doubt if there thrives more than 16 pairs of ravens, 6 pairs of skylarks, 6 pairs of buzzards, a couple of pairs of other raptors, 4 pairs of big songbirds. No grouse, no deer, no hare (until last Saturday). In fact I think there’s more going on in the Gobi desert. Somebody tell me what this is about please. Herself was notable by her summer coat worn in a winter blizzard. A see-it-believe-it measure of warming winters. Pic shows raven roost within - Pot of Pulgarve.
