It’s mildly ironic that the tag for Day 21 features as a fox, as I’m featuring his favourite foodstuff; the rabbit.The university campus has a healthy population of rabbits, and currently there are numerous tiny kits frolicking about too. But over lunch I decided to sit and eat on the same patch of greenery the rabbits like to sunbathe in. My hope was they would sit out if I stayed quiet and still.
It wasn’t a roaring success, most fled as soon as I snuck up. But they didn’t go far and several stayed sat out, at a wary distance.
The group have some interesting colour variations such as this exceptional light, almost ginger, rabbit.
It wasn’t just the rabbits. I sat myself into the branches of a tree and, after waiting patiently, a small number of chiffchaffs were flitting around not six feet from my head.
To top it all off, I heard an explosion of calling Long-tailed Tits, looked up, and a group of 30-40, maybe more, went twittering past. Glorious.
No photos of the birds, but a few more of the bunnies.
