A hare not a bunny

When I was a child in East Yorkshire I remember seeing hares, but that was a long time ago. Here in Spain we are used to seeing them in the olive groves. They are shy and nocturnal, we only ever see them in our headlights when driving at night. They are like a rabbit but with longer legs and black-tipped ears, but they run much faster.
