There has been a population explosion of hares on a Skegness-area farm.

According to farmer Tim Spencer, they have benefited from the solar park that he has created at The Hollies between Croft and Burgh le Marsh.

“Hares used to be rare but now they are commonplace,” he says. “There is no human disturbance, and the solar panels shelter them both from adverse weather such as heavy rainfall which can be fatal to their young.”
