Pesky Wabbits

As I drive home of an evening I'm virtually guaranteed seeing a Rabbit. Not on the rat runs and country lanes oh no sirree bob I see them on the Hastingwood Roundabout as you come off the Junction 7 of the M11.

The roundabout is very big and has one of those weighstation things but a large part of it is grass and on the Western side there are always a few Rabbits sitting out.

Now tonight I got thinking, just how isolated are the rabbits? Do they cross the road? The roundabout is busy but I've never seen a dead one! Do they burrow deep and go under the road? Or are they an isolated population?

I can't answer any of those but on my nightly commute home as I'm stuck at the lights I can look right and enjoy a glimpse of Brer Rabbit.

Interesting thought Pete. Just how do they get there? Deep tunnel?

On a similar note, there is an island on one of our local lakes, that has rabbits. Do they swim?
I can't think how they got there.

Had the same thought as HM.... perhaps they move at night when the roads are quieter? Interesting though...

Amazing that you don't see a few bodies on the road. It must be treacherous for the bunnies.
