Rabbit grazing highlighted in red

I have read various articles recently alluding to a sharp decline in the rabbit population in the UK.  Not the case on this farm as you can see in the photo a very bare patch in the corner of Home field where the rabbits have been busy over the winter.  Although the numbers are nowhere near the level they reached in the 80’s the numbers here at Church Farm seem to remain fairly constant, I think the buzzards make sure of that!

Although the rabbits don’t trouble the Chamomile they do live in Cottage field as the latest video footage from our Trail Cam shows.
