It's wilder than you might think.

Wish You Were Hare:

If you're visiting the Threave nature reserve keep an eye out for this brown hare. It's been seen regularly around the buildings and car park at Kelton Mains. The brown hare's ability to run at speeds of up to 70kph (45mph) enable it to feed in large open spaces, relying on its speed and acute senses to avoid predation.
