Design Inspiration

My Hampshire Hare design depicts the wildlife and plants that live along the river Itchen and Hampshire chalk streams, which flow through Winchester. An otter chases a brown trout , a water vole hides in the weeds along with frogs and newts. A Grayling swims nearby. Diving beetles,Dragonfly larva and Mayfly live amongst the stones and Flag iris,Water crowfoot, Marsh marigold and Purple loosestrife grow along the banks and in the water. Above flies a Kingfisher with swallows in the sky whilst a Kestral hovers overhead.
