Struggling on

Struggling on, originally uploaded by Ben909.

This photo of the boar shifting themselves through the deep snow was taken back in January at full zoom. It took me some time to track them down again to get the close-up shots.
Apart from the snow, the title is also apt because despite the efforts of the Forestry Commission and others, they are still here. They were featured on BBC Countryfile this evening, where Dr Martin Goulding was promoting the introduction of a close season on the culling of the boar. In my opinion this would go a long way towards a more ethical management of the boar, and give some credibility to the claims that the intention is to control, not eradicate, the boar population.
I’ve still got a couple more shots from this series to upload, then there’ll be no more until my next encounter 🙂
