For the last week I've known a secret, but had no way to prove it.
I did photograph this
...but that's hardly enough for a blog post. :-\
Then, on Christmas day, I finally had the lucky break I'd been hoping for. :-) After days of paw print doodles and the odd flash of fur I finally had proof...
that the rabbits are still in the garden!Yep, there at the base of the middle tree is a rabbit, busy eating the peanuts and bread we put out for the wild birds.
After a while it moved on from noshing peanuts to nibbling the leaves off the big bush to the left of the bird feed tree. You can just make it out as a grey-brown lump below the bush, kind of left-ish. After that it disappeared into the bush and I had to go cook a turkey.We have never had rabbits in the garden over winter before! I'm pretty certain it must be one of our regular semi-tame Summer buns as it wasn't in the least nervous or timid. I have no idea if it is Flopsy or Cottontail... or even our original Bunny Boy, so I'll just call it our "Iced Bun" of Christmas. ;-)..
