There's a look of curiosity in that face...well caught. Looks healthy, there must be plenty for them to survive on in the surroundings.

What a brilliant shot.They are beautiful animals.I spotted one as I was climbing over a gate to reach a field near to Borsdane Wood but it scooted before I managed to get a pic.

Very lucky catch especially if broad daylight, which it looks as if.

Great photo. Lived in Wigan for 60 odd years. Active walker, always out and about. Complained to everyone that I had never ever, sighted one. Then lo and behold spotted one in the Douglas Valley on Pendlebury Lane in June. At long last...I was made up!

I've watched specimens, younger and smaller than that shown here, being freed from tangled netting by experts on TV, and when, also, they were seen to be quite a handful for their saviours.
I guess that 'should specimens, such as that shown here, succumb to the same situation' then they would probably - with no guarantee of recovery, I believe - have to undergo a mild sedation. A 'jolly' good idea.
